Director Tom Tagholm of Park Pictures reunites with telecommunications brand TalkTalk on a holiday spot titled “This Is Christmas” out of CHI & Partners, London. This candid, unscripted TV commercial reveals what Christmas really looks like in one British family home, when the filmmakers are out of sight. 

Created by advertising agency CHI & Partners, the :60 offers an intimate, honest insight into the laughter, chaos and touching moments of the festive season as experienced by a family in the UK.
This marks the return of the family, including their dog Elvis, as featured in TalkTalk’s 2016 “This Stuff Matters” campaign which was shot using the same fly-on-the-wall camera technique, also directed by Tagholm for CHI & Partners.
