Diary: Pick of the week - Mother/Boots

Kate Nettleton finds that Mother's Christmas Boots ad appeals to her girly sensibilities:

"This is an insightful look at the military precision that goes into dolling yourself up before the office Christmas party. The most amusing thing about it is the drab do the women are primping and preening themselves for. Really, why do we go to all that effort when all we've got a to look forward to are a few cocktail sausages in the boardroom with Shane from sales?" The ad was directed by Traktor through Partizan.
