Fallon's Shane Meadows ad for Asda released

LONDON - Shane Meadows has directed the latest spot for Asda, promoting its new "Back to school" range of George clothing.

The ad, created by Fallon, features children playing a rough and tumble tug-of-war while wearing their school uniforms, in order to promote the schoolwear's durability.

The children, who were cast via a community after-school programme in Nottingham, are split into a team of boys and a team of girls. The two teams are seen with pained expressions as they fight to win the contest.

The ad ends with the girls' team roping in an extra member to help them seal their victory.

The campaign, which breaks on 4 August, will be supported by six press executions.
