Pick of the week: Heathrow "Coming home for Christmas" by Havas London

Gurjit Degun adores Heathrow's ad showing two bears navigating their way through the airport.

It was created by Dan Bolton and Barney Packham, and directed by Dom & Nic through Outsider.

Brand: Heathrow
Title: Coming home for Christmas
