Boots’ Christmas campaign has taken a nostalgic turn, telling the story of two real-life sisters over four decades as they exchange gifts.
The 60-second film, which launched this Saturday on ITV’s X-Factor, plays out to a re-recorded version of Yazoo’s 1982 hit, Only You, and looks to show how a single gift can show someone you truly know them.
