Description of the Project:
Currys PC World is the biggest electrical retailer in the UK and specialises in selling home electronics and household appliances with over 300 stores across the country.

After years of advertising tactical price promotions during the festive period, Currys PC World wanted to be part of ‘the battle for Christmas’.

To help cut through the usual seasonal schmaltz, we did the exact opposite and enlisted the help of Hollywood star Jeff Goldblum. Who better to give the great British public some helpful acting tips when faced with awkward Christmas moments.  Alternatively, we could all ‘Spare the act this Christmas’ by popping along to Currys PC World.
