According to their website, this version was recorded in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, using a 98 piece orchestra. Although it appears this particular composition is not available to download, you can get The London Pops Orchestra’s arrangement via the links above.
This festive commercial from Argos continues the retailer’s apparent fascination with extreme sports, this time featuring snowboarding, dog sledding and snowmobile racing, as well as unconventional winter versions of downhill mountain biking and white water rafting. There’s even a wingsuit flying Darth Vader and Imperial Stormtroopers thrown in for good measure.
All this adrenaline-filled action is Argos’ way of displaying a small selection of their Autumn/Winter product range. We see brief glimpses of the latest Beats headphones, a bunch of Minions Tumbling Stuart’s, some Fitbit Charge Heart Rate Monitor Wristbands and a Disney Frozen Sing A Long With Elsa doll. All these items can, of course, be purchased using the new Argos same-day delivery service, or through the collect in store 60 seconds Fast Track.
The above video was added to the official Argos YouTube channel on the 6th of November, 2015.
