At last a funny Christmas ad has arrived: DDB London has created this spot for Harvey Nichols that plays on the idea of the post Christmas party ‘walk of shame’…

We’ve all been there (well, ahem, nobody at CR has of course, but our friends have told us about it): woken up somewhere unexpected after a night out and had to make our way home in our party gear when everyone else is going to work. Harvey Nichols’ solution? Buy your clothes from there, sweetie! And then you’ll look fabulous all day long, and the walk of shame is replaced by the stride of pride. The spot then ends with request for people to share their walk of shame stories on Twitter, using the hashtag #walkofshame.
