Credits & Description

Following the lasting mark their captivating spot 'The Long Wait' made on public consciousness last Christmas, Dougal Wilson and adam&eveDDB return to usher in the festive season by giving us the gift of another enchanting film for John Lewis. The star of the spot is an intrepid snowman with extraordinary powers. As we all secretly hope when we say good night to a snowman we've lovingly constructed, he comes to life when the family is fast asleep, but even more incredible is how thoroughly charming this snowman is. He's a real gentleman with a flair for romance and a taste for adventure. The story shows us how far this particular snowman will go to demonstrate his love to his equally charming companion. Braving blizzards, icy streams and towering mountain peaks, the snowman embarks on an epic quest to find the perfect gift that will put a smile on her face, and all before the sun comes up.
