Love at first sight.

by Andrew MacGregor


Wren: “How Deep Is Your Love?” - 40s

Adland's pantheon of bathrobe-clad blokes (see Tesco Mobile and Taylors of Harrogate, to name but a few) receives a new addition courtesy of this dulcet Wren commercial. Building on 2018's ‘Our Heart and Soul' campaign, this latest film sees a man fall head over heels with his new fittings before they've even left the warehouse.

His infatuation is shot through a halcyon filter of soft focus and mood lighting, although the Bee Gees' ‘How Deep is Your Love?' ensures the tone is firmly tongue-in-cheek. The end result is a frothy yet effective reminder of the brand's affection for their craft - one bookended by a nice mug gag.
