Tk Maxx recently contracted brilliant composer Tom Player for the score of their 2013 Holiday advert. The ad is all about the giving of gifts and the feeling of joy you get when you know you have bought someone the perfect present. The track they chose was Yazoo‘s 1982 hit Only You. Player arranged the track fora 30 piece string orchestra and solo piano. It was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios. It’s a lovely version of the original and perfect for Christmas.
We all have selfish moments, but the feeling of giving a gift to someone you care about and then watching their eyes light up is a feeling that is better than almost any other in the world. Gifts don’t need to have a monetary value, they just need to be from the heart. Check out the beautiful advert above, as well as the behind-the-scenes after the jump.
