Sainsbury's is marking 150 years in the business with a fantastical TV ad which sees the brand reflect on its heritage.

The ad sees the grocer celebrate how it's been 'Proudly Doing Our Bit' over the years via the creation of a colourful cake that embodies its values, starting with the opening of the very first store in London's Drury Lane.

The video, created by Wieden+Kennedy London, shines a spotlight on why Mary Ann and John James Sainsbury opened doors in in 1869 — to provide one of the poorest areas of the capital with good value, quality food. It then zooms right into the modern day, showing how the grocer has supported the likes of Comic Relief.
