Vision Direct worked closely in partnership with Bespoke Film and Communications to ensure its first Christmas ad would be something everyone could enjoy. The ad tells a heart-warming story about a boy and his short-sighted pug, Gizmo.

  • The campaign was designed to really resonate with Vision Direct's customer base on an emotional level, whilst remaining relevant to the brand's products and ethics.
  • "Contact lenses delivered in time for Christmas" was chosen as the ad's tagline, to showcase the company's superfast, next day delivery to UK addresses
  • The full length 1'20'’ advert will be available to watch online from Tuesday 1st December on YouTube and VisionDirect.co.uk

Ashley Mealor, Chief Marketing Officer at Vision Direct, said: "As well as promoting our service to a brand new audience, our Christmas campaign is an opportunity to share something special with our customers over the festive season."

Speaking about working on the Christmas campaign, Sam Orams, founding partner and head of creative at Bespoke, said: "... For a creative agency it reminds us of why we work in the industry. It's a chance to really stretch our storytelling muscles and to indulge in those warm feelings of nostalgia that most of us associate with Christmas."

The ad will be promoted across all of the company's social media platforms, including both Facebook and Twitter, along with a 30 second version which will feature as a YouTube advert throughout December.

The ad can be viewed on http://www.visiondirect.co.uk/pug-xmas and via Vision Direct's YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/visiondirectUK from Tuesday 1st December.

A follow up behind the scenes video is also due to be release on Monday 7th December, offering a light hearted perspective of the filming process from Gizmo the Pug's point of view.
