Behind the Scenes of Thomson’s TV Advert

Your ‘Access All Areas’ pass to our hit TV ad…

Our most recent TV advert has proven to be a big hit with audiences, judging from the great feedback we’ve had. Using a mix of real and faux vintage footage – plus some bang-up-to-date stuff – it’s a snapshot of how holidays used to be, and how they are now with Thomson.

It starts off with a trip down memory lane, looking back at some of the great holidays over the past 50 years – dodgy perms and epic sideburns all present and correct. Then, it fast-forwards to the present, with scenes shot at Sensatori Resort Sharm El Sheikh. It’s one of our top 5-star resorts with 6 restaurants, glam swim-up rooms and state-of-the-art kids’ clubs among its many plus points. Sensatori Tenerife also makes an appearance – it’s the only hotel in our collection to have been awarded an extraordinary 5T+ rating. Ultimately, the ad is showing that times have changed when it comes to holidays – and so have we.

Here’s an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes of how we created those nostalgic holiday shots…

The new advert had a tough act to follow – last year’s ad was a hit, too. It focussed on the concept of spending quality time as a family, to the stunning voice of Sunday Girl covering The Pixies’ ‘Where is my mind?’ – the song was later released after we were inundated with customer requests.

    I am writing on behalf of myself Tia age 10, my Mum Lisa and a group of Friends who are fundraising to raise funds for a specialist wheelchair for a 4 year old local boy who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is a progressive disease with no cure therefore life expectancy is dramatically shortened.

    We will be holding various fundraising events over the next few months therefore we are looking for the support of local businesses who would kindly offer a prize for a Raffle or Tombola.

    We would be very grateful if you could support us in anyway.

    Thank you for taking the time to read.

    Love Tia

      Hi Tia, I’m sorry to advise, we can’t help with individual requests for support because we’re committed to partnerships with a number of charities through our fundraising programme. We support: Tommy’s, The Family Holiday Association and Born Free Foundation. In addition, Thomson Airways staff nominate a charity local to where they’re based, to help through collections on our flights. Nevertheless, we wish you the best with your fundraising.
