It's proving to be the most popular Christmas ad of all time over here in the UK.

 

Purplekow worth remembering it's designed by a supermarket to sell chocolate for a charity not win an oscar ;)

 

Shadowcatzxxx totally empathise with this... "It actually made me tear up a bit"

Beyond Advertising - this borders on video art

Perhaps a bit of dirt on the faces and an unshaved chin or two would have added a touch of realism to it.

 

Yes, a bit of dirt and some stubble would have made it a bit more realistic . . .

 

 

And maybe a few crossover trench visits. http://www.boytoy.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif

I have watched this ad now well over a dozen times -- take a close look at the hands of the central UK soldier in the ad -- and some of the others. A bit of dirt? They had more than a bit. But shadowcatzxxx you got the point and that is what the advertiser most wants. They intentionally wanted something to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the "War to end all Wars" and this was IMHO a good tribute with a good lesson. And as I already mentioned, I too had a tear or two.
