Considering the popularity of the 20s this year, this black-and-white silent film for Harrods Christmas is perfect. The ad is short and sweet, showing an incredibly well-dressed man who is waiting on a bench and keeps constantly checking his watch. It cuts to a woman who is rushing to join this man and board the train.
The clip is only just over 40 seconds long and it moves along quite quickly, especially with the peppy music. Fortunately the rushing lady is able to catch the train with the gentleman and the Harrods' simple message is revealed, detailing that "Christmas won't wait" and that shoppers have until December 18th to make online purchases and receive their gifts with UK standard shipping before Christmas.
