Marketing Weak: Tesco - Daydream

If this commercial for Tesco has one saving grace from the advertiser’s point of view, it’s that they decided against putting their Norse warrior on a horse as he searches the aisles of the supermarket for the shopping ordered online by a daydreaming mum. Can you imagine the social media fun at Tesco’s expense if they’d done that? Even so, it’s a pretty woeful piece of advertising and leaves us wondering when Tesco’s decision to switch agencies is going to yield any kind of advertising dividend.
