Santa’s 125-year-old Barbour holds up better than the traditional red robe in this gently humorous spot inspired by Raymond Briggs’s children’s book, 'Father Christmas'. For those unfamiliar with the term 'Barbour', the name of the clothing company set up in Britain in 1894 by John Barbour has become shorthand for a distinctive sludge-coloured, practical waxed cotton jacket appropriate to and beloved of well-off countryside folk. Featuring a somewhat grumpy Father Christmas looking back in fondness on a special gift from his wife, events are brought right up to date with a voice command device that is nearly his undoing as sotto voce grumbles are picked up by the sharp ears of modern tech...
