Littlewoods Christmas Walk

Littlewoods, the British mail order company, is riffing on Shaun of the Dead this Christmas with the Littlweoods Christmas Walk. The commercial features a family who set out to get some fresh air on Christmas Day, dressed in style. The family walks through the streets proudly displaying winter jackets, boots, makeup, Beats headphones, Fitbit, scooter and lightsaber. The Shaun of the Dead reference comes as the family turn a corner and bump into another similarly attired family (cross reference Sean and Yvonne’s survivor gangs bumping into each other). The English politeness comes to the fore, with “Merry Christmas”, “hello” and “hi”.
