Consumers want Burberry to make a full-length movie out of their epic 3-minute mini-movie

Posted on Posted in Beloved Brands in the Market

burberrywallpaper3In a very small window, just before John Lewis is about to launch their 2016 Christmas ad, Burberry has stolen the show and managed to capture the attention of the internet with an epic 3-minute mini movie. The production qualities so rich, the story telling so strong and the passion so real. This cinematic movie trailer utilizes Academy Award-winning director Asif Kapadia and it was written by Academy Award-nominee Matt Charman.

Burberry calls this ad “The Tale of Thomas Burberry. 160 years in the making, a story inspired by the pioneering discoveries of our founder, reimagining key events that have shaped Burberry’s history”.

The ad portrays Thomas Burberry as an obsessive inventor and entrepreneur showcasing the emotion he put into his craft. It may take liberties on the excitement of his life–bordering on making him into the world’s most interesting man in the world–but we certainly can feel his purpose and passion shining through.



This ad is clearly targeted at those who already love the Burberry brand, giving them another reason to love the brand, and getting them to whisper with influence to their social network by sharing this ad with their friends. The internet is going crazy for Thomas Burberry, with almost 5 million views after a few days. The comments on line are demanding a full length movie version be brought to life.
