Dekko, a contemporary furniture company based in Belfast, has launched a television advertisement, “A Tale for Christmas”, encouraging viewers to make Dekko their home base for Christmas shopping.
The animated 20 second TV advert begins with snow falling in a forest at night, creating the feel of an old European animation. A young blonde girl walks through the trees, basket in hand. Black wolves wait in the shadows. The girl stops to pick up a sparkling red Christmas tree decoration, holding it up to get a sense of direction. Finally she reaches the safety of Dekko, her home.
The voiceover: “Beware of the forest, little one, for darkness makes a home for monsters of the night. A trail of jewels will be the shining path of light that takes you home. Find your home at Dekko this Christmas!”
