Manor: Special Christmas

Toy car? New baby brother? Pony with wings? Pah - those Christmas wish-lists are a doddle for Santa  to sort. But even he gets stumped at times. Thankfully, Manor is on hand to help.

BETC Shopper are behind this whimsical animated spot for the Swiss department store, directed by Passion's againstallodds, who are clearly in high demand for the Christmas ad season (they've also helmed's festive campaign). In the two-minute film, Santa receives a indecipherable Christmas list that sends him into a cold sweat -  and no-one, from his team of elves to his tech-whizz junior, can decipher it. Luckily, the big boss has a brainwave and sends him off to Manor - where a smiling shop assistant manages to track down the elusive gift.
