Great Western Railway "Five and the jetpack" by Adam & Eve/DDB

Enid Blyton's Famous Five return in Great Western Railway's latest spot.

After Uncle Quentin’s latest invention – a homemade jetpack – goes rogue, the Famous Five race (by train, of course) to find him. Julian, George, Dick and Anne find Quentin hanging from the spiral of a distant castle, with Timmy the dog intervening just in time to save him from being impaled. The ad ends as the group travel back home via a GWR train. 

This is the third instalment of the gang’s adventures with Great Western Railway, alongside 2017’s "Five go on a Great Western Adventure" and "Five and the missing jewels". It was created by Steve Wioland and Matt Woolner, and directed by The Greatest Showman’s Michael Gracey through Friends Electric in collaboration with Partizan.
