The Tank Museum releases Tanks for the Christmas Memories advert.
The John Lewis style advert follows the Tanks for the Memories exhibition that was launched this year and explores the story of the tank as a cultural icon through toy, books, and models.
Created by the Museum’s in-house media team, the film starts with Curator David Willey reminiscing on Christmas gifts gone by and cuts to a young David in a 1970s living room, opening presents with delight.
“Everyone remembers a favourite present from when they were children and the delight of waking up with the expectation of that one special toy that was on their Christmas list,” said Assistant Digital Marketing Manager Kirsty Goddard.
“We wanted to recreate this nostalgia by using popular YouTube stars, Museum curator David Willey and Fin, the Border Collie in a retro Christmas scene set in the Museum’s latest exhibition”.
Tank enthusiasts can now shop the full range of Christmas products in the Museum shop.
