Says Albiston: "Getting the casting right was always going to be the key to this campaign, and the team at Albion were brilliantly supportive, and not a little brave, in letting us use the casting process to shape the final films. Our amazing young lead made us laugh the moment we put the music on... there was no need for choreography, we simply picked his best moves from the first audition and put a routine together."
Says Adam Lawrenson, ECD, Albion: "This campaign marks a totally new direction for the brand and is routed in an idea which works well not only for communications, but also for product and the organisation internally. That will be key to driving forward the agenda for the Thomas Cook Group over the coming years."
