The new ‘Book of Dreams’ Argos Christmas advert features a father and daughter playing the drums to the 80’s hit song ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ by Simple Minds, a tune that will now surely see a huge boost in download sales.
This non-traditional Christmas ad begins with a man sitting in his kitchen at night, flicking through the latest Argos catalogue. There the actor notices that his daughter has circled a Music Alley drum kit she wants, before the table splits open and he’s presented with that very set of drums.
From there he begins to play along to a song on the TV and a full-on rock performance ensues, eventually joined by his little girl for a drumming duet. A crowd surfing bear even gets in on the action. The name of the young actress playing the drums is Nandi Bushell.
Song Title: Don’t You (Forget About Me).
Band: Simple Minds.

This year’s Argos Christmas advert music that the pair are playing along to is a song called ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ that was recorded by the Scottish pop-rock band Simple Minds.
The single was released in 1985 and features on the soundtrack album to US movie The Breakfast Club. The vocals on this track are performed by the group’s lead singer Jim Kerr.
