Not On The High Street: “Extraordinary Awaits” - 60s

A play on Dr. Seuss's 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!' accompanies this hopeful commercial for Not On The High Street—a name that sums up much of the country’s behaviour over the last year or so. As curtains are opened and slippers are shed, the cast reacquiant themselves with some old routines and a few new ones to boot.

One line ("There's a world outside and a world coming in") is particularly effective, as it appeals to those ready for adventure and those set on hosting friends and family again first. Coupled with director John Turner and DP Jack Wilkinson's warm photography, it's an another 60" step towards some kind of normality.
