Over-familiar surroundings.

DFS: “Too Comfortable” - 1 min 49s

These well-cast idents for DFS star a couple for whom nothing is taboo on a sofa that's, well, too comfy. While he fiddles with his belly button and shares too much information about a television crush, she licks soup off her jumper and eats ice cream sans spoon. The brand, to their credit, admit they’re partly to blame for such rampant ease.

Released after a year in which many domestic inhibitions have been shed for sanity's sake, each vignette rings true thanks to director Ben Fogg and his game cast. We particularly like the woman's attempt to pick up the phone with her feet—a key part of any couch potato's arsenal. Should raise a smile between chunks of Gogglebox.
