Real Love

Posted November 6, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

John Lewis, adam&eveDDB and Blink director Dougal Wilson have created yet another amazing and heartfelt Christmas ad, set to Tom Odell’s cover of John Lennon’s Real Love (I like that Tom Odell – especially this remix).

The live action and CG spot, “Monty the Penguin,” has put tears in my tea – and I’m ok with that. In fact, I’d feel ripped-off if it didn’t. This is the seventh spot Dougal Wilson has directed for the London retailer – other gems include The Long Wait (my fav), The Journey, Never Standing Still, and the stop motion Things Matter.
