Royal Mail “We love parcels” TV advert

With the fantastic news that Royal Mail will not be hit by a CWU strike this Monday, Royal Mail have released their first TV advert for six years.

The adverts celebrate the role Royal Mail’s people play in delivering 1 billion parcels a year and features a version of‘ The Beatles’ classic song ‘All You Need Is Love’ sung by the Royal Mail Choir.

You may have seen the full advert during Saturday night’s X Factor on ITV and the actors in the advert are all real Royal Mail employees. More than 2,500 of 132,000 Royal Mail workers invited applied and 25 were selected to appear in the ad after auditioning in front of a judging panel of film producers and directors.

A special Christmas version of the advert, which despite the snowy scenes was filmed on location in the UK in July, will air later this month.
