Advert: Argos – #JustCantWait For Christmas
Music: Tom Player – Troika (Prokofiev)
Snowboarding, BMXing and zorbing feature in this extreme winter sport Argos Christmas 2015 TV ad, alongside a snowy-mountain of gifts, including Beats headphones, Minons Tumbling Stuarts, and Fitbit wristbands. The soundtrack is a brand new arrangement of Prokofiev’s Troika by TV Ad Music regular Tom Player from Lost Track Productions. Troika is the fourth movement from Sergei Prokofiev’s score for the 1934 Russian movie Lieutenant Kijé. It has subsequently become indelibly linked with Christmas, and is occasionally referred to as Sleigh Ride. It features extensively in the popular Christmas hit I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake. Tom Player’s version of Troika isn’t available, but you can download the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra version on iTunes.
