This “Operation School Run” TV spot underscores that back-to-school needs can be met at Argos, a U.K. digital retailer selling more than 60,000 products through its website, mobile channels, 850+ stores, and over the telephone.  For instance, Argos customers can order Tu clothing online by 2pm for next day home delivery or free Click & Collect from stores across the country.

Created by The&Partnership London and directed by Matthijs van Heijningen via MJZ, the :30 follows a not-so-typical first day back as Mum and Dad make sure the kids have all their uniforms in check before they set off for school--by parachuting out the back of the family Chinook twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter with Mum in tow. 

Yan Elliott, joint ECD at The&Partnership London, said, “Even the school run feels like a military operation sometimes. With Argos you’re as good to go as humanly possible!”
