Wickes 'Housebarrassment' by VCCP

Wickes is shining a light on the struggles of 'housebarrassment' with a socially awkward spot, created by VCCP.

The latest in a series of ads by the brand on the topic, the work begins as a gamer gloats about his tech-savvy skills, before inviting his friend over to put his skills to the test.

Things take a turn, however, when the gamer realises that his childhood room (equipped with nautical-themed wallpaper) probably isn’t fit to show off to his mate, prompting him to redecorate with his dad.

"Cure your housebarressment with Wickes," a voiceover declares as the ad comes to a close.

The TV ad launched yesterday and was created by Chris Hodgkiss and Pip Bishop, and directed by Stephen Pipe through Tantrum. Media is handled by Carat.
