Waitrose Autumn Advert – Song and singer details for the supermarkets ‘Warmest Season’ TV ad. #AutumnWarmers
This brand new advert for Waitrose is set to the sounds of ‘A Rather Blustery Day’, which is taken from a 1968 Winnie the Pooh featurette of the same name.
The song is sung in the story by Pooh, who was voiced by the American actor Sterling Holloway. Its lyrics were penned by American songwriting duo, the Sherman Brothers.
You can watch Winnie the Pooh singing this whimsical number in the video at the bottom of this page.
Waitrose latest commercial takes an alternative look at the cold, wet months ahead. With the help of some delicious looking hot meals, the upmarket food retailer manages to turn Autumn into the ‘Warmest Season’.
Added to the supermarket’s official YouTube channel on the 1st of October, 2015, the 1-minute video alone is almost enough to warm you up. Much like Marks & Spencer’s style of advertising, if you didn’t have an appetite before watching, you will now.
Winnie the Pooh singing A Rather Blustery Day
The lyrics from this song that you hear in the advert go something like this: ‘Hum, hum dumadi, dum. Dum, dum, dee. Oh the wind is lashing lusterly. And the trees are thrashing thrusterly. And the leaves are rustling gusterly. So it’s rather safe to say. That it seems that it may turn out to be. Feels that it will undoubtedly. Looks like a rather blustery day today. It seems that it may turn out to be. Feels that it will undoubtedly. Looks like a rather blustery day.’
