Heathrow’s Bears Make Their Triumphant Holiday Return

Heathrow’s Bears (officially named Doris and Edward Bair) have been a big hit since being released a few years ago. And of course they’re a big hit…who can resist cute and cuddly bears? This time around, the Bairs are just like old Americans, and they’ve moved to Florida. It’s nice and warm in December, but the homesickness starts to creep in…what with frozen turkey dinners and a sad Christmas tree that gets blown over by the ceiling fan. After Skyping with their family, it’s settled. They’re coming back home for Christmas! Aww. Paul Young’s “Every Time You Go Away” is the evocative soundtrack to this adorable spot, created by Havas London.

Britain’s Beer Alliance Says “Long Live The Local!”

If you were to think about iconic aspects of everyday British culture, the pub would be high on the list. In this compelling spot from Britain’s Beer Alliance, we see important scenes that play out in the pub, along with a voiceover that grows in urgency. And then there’s the sobering statistic that 3 pubs a day close for good, and that pubs are under increasing tax pressures. It ends with a message to sign the petition to cut the beer tax. Here’s more on this excellent ad, created by Havas London.
