Wake The Town Handles Music Duties on House of Fraser’s Cliché-Defying Christmas Ad

Creative 169 Add to collection

18 Feet & Rising team up with Laura Mvula to update The Delfonics ‘Ready or Not’ for this glorious 'festive whirlwind'

Wake The Town Handles Music Duties on House of Fraser’s Cliché-Defying Christmas Ad

‘Christmas Is Coming For You’ & it’s time to embrace the holiday fun with the help of House of Fraser! That’s the message in this high-paced, brilliantly Suzette Brissett-choreographed spot which foregoes the usual seasonal trappings to highlight the “abundance of style” on offer at the retailer as 2016 draws to a close. 

Helmed by acclaimed music video director Emil Nava the slick as heck visual is complemented beautifully by the distinctively sumptuous vocal of Laura Mvula who modernises the iconic ‘Ready or Not’ to provide a memorable slice of sonic glamour. The chanteuse amplified the spot further with a live performance at House of Fraser’s Glasgow store.

John Connon, Wake The Town’s Creative Director, was brought on-board early into the project helping provide the audio to which all latter choreography was set to. The result? An energetic, rip-roaring spot filled with festive glitz that wonderfully stands out from the more traditional seasonal fare.
