Advert: M&S – The Art Of Christmas 2015
Music: Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars)
Marks & Spencer gives its Art of… campaign a festive flourish for the 2015 Christmas TV ad, featuring neon-lit giant decorations and presents, dancers, gymnasts, and a festive feast, with all the clothes and gifts available at the M&S Christmas ad shop. Look out for Morecambe and Wise, and a couple of odd disclaimer messages (“Gymnast shown” and “Over 18’s [sic] only”). With the big Christmas ads now launching in early November, it’s no surprise that they all don’t feature Christmas music, although M&S have played very safe here, using the same track used in previous Art of… ads, namely the very familiar Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, the most played song of the last 12 months. Uptown Funk is available to download on iTunes.
