Usually it is John Lewis, supermarket chains, or even the reliable Coca-Cola advert that can get eyes watering with emotion in the run up to Christms. But an unlikely contender for the 2015 Christmas Advert crown, in the form of a moving advert for the Spanish Lottery. The animation – which went viral this week – has no words, just Ludovico Einaudi’s ‘Nuvole Bianche’ from his 2011 album “Islands”
Over three minutes long, the heart-warming animation shows a lonely security guard whose life is stuck in a routine that involves minimal human contact. But all of that changes when he sets up a lottery syndicate and finds himself surprised by his colleagues when their numbers come up.
Ludovico Einaudi latest album “Elements” entered the official album chart in the top 15 this October.
