Watch the brand new Debenhams TV advert
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 25 OCT 2009 09:07 DEBENHAMS NEWSCOMMENTS
Our brand new TV advert has landed, and you’ll be able to catch it on TV until 13 November 2009. The first screening will be during the 8.30pm edition of Coronation Street on 19 October or you can watch it below…
The location: If you’ve ever been to Eltham Palace you’ll probably recognise that gorgeous 1930’s Art Deco interior. I spotted it straight away. Not only is it a great place for a party, it’s full of elegant and ingenious design features.
The director: Thomas Napper was the perfect choice to bring our story to life, having worked as Second Unit Director on blockbusters such as ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Atonement’.
The voice: Did you guess it? The voiceover was Paul McGann, a one time Dr Who.
The music: Love is the Drug by Roxy Music is one of those songs that everyone seems to recognise despite being released over 30 years ago. Just the thing to get us all in the mood for the upcoming party season.
We asked Michael Sharp, Deputy Chief Executive at Debenhams about the idea behind the new advert:
“Design is at the heart of everything we do and our new ad reflects that. Our TV campaign allows us to showcase our design heritage and remind our customers what we’re about in a way that no other retailer on the high street can do. Stylish, exciting products that are accessible to everyone.”
