Advert: House of Fraser – Bring Merry Back
Music: The Staple Singers – Who Took The Merry Out of Christmas
House of Fraser’s Christmas 2017 TV ad takes a different look at a familiar theme as, just like in this year’s Boots TV ad, two sisters reflect on Christmases past, and look forward to bringing the merry back this year. If the theme is familiar, the soundtrack is most probably not to most viewers, so full marks to the House of Fraser crate diggers for finding festive soul treat Who Took The Merry Out of Christmas by The Staple Singers, originally released on Stax in 1970. It’s available to download on iTunes.
