AMV BBDO Dreams of Cocktails for Currys PC World

By Erik Oster 

AMV BBDO launched a new campaign for Currys PC World entitled “Tech for the life you dream of…”

In “Pina Colada” (featured above) a woman fantasizes about using her refrigerator’s ice maker for a variety of exotic cocktails. After a musical fantasy sequence, however, she is interrupted by a very different reality. The spot ends with the line “Tech for the life you dream of*” followed by “*and the one you live.” Other ads in the campaign follow the same humorous fantasy/reality approach, depicting a father who imagines himself as a top chef but whose son requests something a bit simpler than he’d imagined for dinner and a child entertainer who wishes he was in a metal band.
