Bicoastal and London-based production company Park Pictures showcases two very different getaways in :60 second advertisements for Thomas Cook helmed by Christian & Patrick, bringing back their beloved tagline “Don’t just book it, Thomas Cook it,” out of agency KBS Albion. In the spot “ROCKING it,” one resort-goer steals the show with total confidence and swagger, much to the delight and surprise of the other guests. In “The Chase,” viewers follow a couple in love through time and tropical destinations as they relive the holidays that brought them closer together. Both spots display the director’s cinematic eye and tendencies toward heartfelt humor while breathing new life into the travel agency brand.
