TalkTalk Creates A Magical Date Night -- with a 'Mannequin' Flavor

Astronaut and Fairy Find True Love in New Ad by CHI Backed by Classic '80s Tune

Published on Sep 09, 2013

Editor's Pick

For those that remember '80s movie Mannequin and its theme song Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, here's a treat from the UK's TalkTalk TV, featuring an astronaut from a kid's wallpaper and a fairy from a night light who go on a night-time date. Directed by Si and Ad through CHI & Partners, with special effects by Electric Theatre Collective, it's appropriately cute and effectively promotes that warm and fuzzy feeling, tying in nicely with its strapline "a brighter home for everyone". The spot broke during the UK's X-Factor on Saturday night.
