Camelot (The National Lottery)



The National Lottery in the UK is inviting the nation to come together and imagine the joy of winning with a Christmas campaign created by adam&eveDDB for National Lottery operator Camelot.

The launch ad, ‘Christmas Love Story’ directed by Oscar-winner Tom Hooper is set to a new arrangement of George Michael’s ‘Faith,’ performed by artist Sleeping At Last, begins with a chance encounter between two people who meet on a train and hastily exchange a phone number on the back of a National Lottery ticket.


Camelot executive director, Matt Ridsdale, said: “The National Lottery is a uniting force for good in the UK – with players raising over £30 million every week for Good Causes. This latest campaign is all about The National Lottery’s ambition to bring people together. It also taps into the feelings of hope and possibility that we collectively experience at Christmas, showing that it’s always worth taking a chance to win big.”

Ben Tollett, group executive creative director, adam&eveDDB added: “At a time when the nation needs some magic in the air, we wanted to create a larger than life story about the lottery and true love – two games of chance that make the perfect subject for a Christmas romantic comedy.”
