This year’s campaign is about the lengths we go to in order to find the perfect surprise for our loved ones at Christmas. It tells the story of a father working away from home, whose daughter asks him to bring her home a “Surprise”, sending him on an epic quest to the ends of the earth to find the perfect thing.
The ad was written and creatively directed by Rory Hamilton, art directed by John Kilkenny, client serviced by Pat Stephenson and Julie Fullerton and produced by Derek Doyle.
We shot on location in both Ireland and the Arctic Circle, with famed Director Tomas Jonsgarden. The production company was Knucklehead with post production by Screen Scene in Dublin. The beautiful track is “If I Be Wrong” by Wolf Larsen.
Thanks to everyone involved, not least the team at Three.
