Discover a new world of beauty at Boots UK this Christmas

06 November 2015

This Christmas, Boots is inviting the nation to #DiscoverMore of their unique beauty gift collection with a Christmas ad that transports the viewer into a glamorous world of Christmas festivities.

Navigated by a curious blue firefly, the advert takes viewers into a world of elegance, pampering, luxury, fun and fragrance as the playful assistant swoops through magical rooms packed full of fabulous beauty gifts as far as the eye can see.

Helen Jeremiah, Director of Customer Strategy and Communications at Boots UK, explains:

“Our beauty gift collection is definitely our best ever. Handpicked by our specialist team and featuring much coveted favourites like Soap & Glory and Champneys, but also exciting new additions such as Liz Earle, Jack Wills, YSL and Reiss.

We felt our customers and our gifts deserved to be introduced to each other in a rather special way so we decided to create this exciting, Christmassy world packed full of beauty gifts we’d all love to give…and receive! Upbeat and fun, it’s designed to get us all in the mood for Christmas festivities.”       

The advert was directed by Joseph Khan, who has worked with every notable pop icon from Britney to Taylor. Chosen for his unparalleled technical wizardry and ability to create bright, beautiful worlds of elegance and fun he says:

"I loved this script as soon as I read it... What makes this concept so awesome is the idea of treating Boots' Christmas offerings as a spark to inspire a living, breathing Christmas wonderland, all contained inside this mysterious factory. The key was to shoot from the firefly's POV which allowed us to zip and zoom, seamlessly from room to room whilst taking the audience on a soaring journey past the colours, faces and menagerie of products in a stylish Christmas world."

The soundtrack to the advert has been specially recorded by Jessie J and sets a fabulous festive tone. It’s Jessie’s unique version of the 1950s classic "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag" and perfectly complements the glamorous emporium setting.
