Myopic lumberjack causes chaos in Specsavers ad

LONDON - Rattling Stick has produced a new ad for Specsavers, showing the effects of a power cut.

Specsavers...power cut ad
Specsavers...power cut ad

The ad, commissioned in house by the opticians, shows an American town hit by an outage.

A hairdressers clippers stop mid-haircut, a junction is jammed after a lights failure, and a cinema audience is disgruntled after a blue movie stops at a key moment.

The final scene shows a short-sighted lumberjack chopping what appears to be a tree, but turns out to be a wooden power line.
