Welcome to TLC UK
The time has come, we are officially allowed to start counting down to Christmas which, at TLC means cracking open our advent calendars and replacing our usual playlist for something more festive. Nonetheless Christmas has been in our faces for weeks and the hot topic in the marketing press has been the television adverts. So we decided to have a discussion of our own, and sat down with TLC’s in house creative team to get their opinions on the adverts this year.
We started by tucking into the Marks & Spencer, The Art of Christmas ad. "I don't think I've seen Marks and Spencer this year" says Art Director Helen Connolly, but as it starts to play, "Oh yes. I have…" Followed by a quick "Oh no" This year we've been bombarded with a nightmarishly amount of products, and does very little in telling us any sort of story at all. Perhaps an attempt at differentiating themselves, making the brand younger, but is that what we want from a brand we have all grown up with? What happened to the “Magic and Sparkle” of the luxury and quality in which they've stood for all these years? And about that song! “The most overplayed song of 2015” claims Helen which, not only has no relevance to Christmas or the DNA of Marks and Spencer, it’s sung by an American.Read more >
