Song Title: La Fille Mal Gardee – Clog Dance.
Download the full Orchestra Of The Royal Opera House version from: iTunes and Amazon.
With festive ads having been airing on TV for more than three weeks now, you could question Quality Street’s choice of title with: The First Sign of Christmas. But I guess this slogan refers to the chocolates themselves being the sign, rather than the ad.
To be fair though, late November is probably the time of year you should be starting to see the first festive adverts broadcast. In that respect, we should perhaps praise Nestle’s patients for holding out this long.
QS’s very Christmassy and traditional ad is set on a snow covered street, showing thousands of wrappers falling from the sky.
This years Quality Street Christmas Advert features some classical music in the form of ‘Clog Dance’, from the ballet La fille mal gardée.
I’m not certain exactly which version is being played here, but it sounds very similar, if not identical to the recording made by the Orchestra Of The Royal Opera House.
