Specsavers delivers Olympic TV spot

Specsavers is continuing its "Should've gone to Specsavers" strategy, except this time it has a bit of an Olympics feel to it.

The ad, which promotes the optician's summer sale, begins with some gentle music and a mother and daughter playing in a sandpit.

As the girl chuckles away to herself, a long-jumper, resplendent in a figure-hugging lycra leotard, crashes into the sand and runs off celebrating.

The ad finishes with the familiar line: "Should've gone to Specsavers."
