The Debenhams Christmas ad was talked about for days with a 20-second teaser, until it finally launched today.

The #YouShall campaign tells the tale of a young woman who locks eyes with a handsome stranger on a train, while laden down with shopping. She accidentally drops a shoe from her bag, and in true Cinderella and Prince Charming fashion, he embarks on a mission to find her. Albeit, through the power of social media and with a little help from Fairy Godfather Ewan McGregor.

Have a look at the fairytale romance here:

The ad conjures up the same sort of feel-good factor as movie favourites Love Actually, Serendipity or even Bridget Jones. The slightly snow-speckled London streets, where it’s not slushy and dirty but distinctly Hollywood-esque, are the perfect backdrop for this romantic tale.
