British luxury brand Burberry has unveiled its 2015 festive campaign celebrating the 15th anniversary of dance film, Billy Elliot. Complete with a star-studded British cast of musicians, actors and models, the brand recreated the opening scene of the film for its advertisement. Elton John, James Corden, Julie Walters, Romeo Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Rosie and Toby Huntington-Whiteley, Michelle Dockery, James Bay and George Ezra all appear in the campaign film, jumping up and down in key pieces from the brand to the soundtrack of Cosmic Dancer by T Rex.
On the campaign, Burberry CEO Christopher Bailey said, “Billy Elliot is an incredible film full of so much joy and energy, so it was a real thrill and a great honour to be able to celebrate its 15 year anniversary through our Festive campaign.”
Burberry has also pledged to donate £500,000 to be dived between two charities for community development within the area which Billy Elliot was set.
