Waitrose Christmas ad follows journeys home

LONDON - Waitrose has opted for a sentimental theme for a Christmas TV ad that promotes its range of festive food.

The spot, created by Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy, follows various people, from a student to a fisherman, making their journey home for Christmas.

The student is seen on a crowded train, the fisherman moors up to port, and a small child sleeps in the back of a car.

Each are making their way home to enjoy Christmas, and all its trimmings, with their loved ones.

The action is interspersed with shots of Waitrose's Christmas food offering and ends with the line: "At Christmas, there's only one place to be."
