Lotto: A year in the life.

by Andrew MacGregor


Lotto: “People in Your Life” - 2 mins

Lotto cram a whole year into this two-minute commercial. Starting with a New Year’s Day hangover, the ad charts one woman’s ups and downs in 2017: holidays, music festivals, mass cat feedings… time flies when you’re having a good time.

Smartphone clips and full-screen vignettes produce a light-hearted jaunt, though Smuggler’s Joshua Neale also includes some poignant moments. A brief cameo from Katy’s grandfather is particularly effective.

It’s a strong addition to the competition’s ‘Who Wins If You Win’ campaign. Even if we don’t scoop the festive jackpot, we can at least celebrate those who stood by us in 2017.
