Heathrow Airport’s newest Christmas spot adds another tale to the life of Britain’s much-loved bears, Doris and Edward Bair.

This time around, the pair is returning to the U.K. from their Florida home after longing for the quintessential British Christmas.

The ad opens with Doris and Edward soaking in the Florida sun. Upon hearing sound of carols, though, the bears are reminded that Xmas in the sunshine isn’t the same. From memories of cozy fires and stockings hung, to the grandchildren playing, Doris and Edward know what they need to do to make it Christmas; make it Home.

Set to the 80’s classic Paul Young’s “Every Time You Go Away,” the Bairs rush themselves back towards the British twilight, arriving into Heathrow--the same location their eyes met and their love story began 50 years ago. 

Paul Young, singer, songwriter and musician comments: “’Every Time You Go Away’ was first released over thirty years ago in 1985. So much has changed since then, however the feeling of loved ones going away is still the same. I’m delighted that it will feature on Heathrow’s Christmas advert which brings to life those feelings for Doris, Edward and the Bair family.”

Dom&Nic of production house Outsider directed the spot--titled “Making it Home Makes it Christmas”--for Havas London, with animation from The Mill.
