Feel at Home

by Syd Briscoe


Purple Bricks: “You'll Be Totally Sold” - 30s

Switching things up from their recent 'commisery' series, Purple Bricks bring an animated twist to their latest commercial. With stripped back humour and lovely stop-motion visuals, director Joseph Mann accomplishes a rare feat by delivering a propety ad which feels, well, homely.

Despite their praise, the couple in the film aren't overly effusive in describing the efforts of their estate agent... that is, until the subject of his "lovely eyes" comes up. It's a good-natured twist on the roving eye trope, particularly when the wife's dreamy gaze is met with merely a raised eye from her spouse.
