Comedian Nick Helms is used to a later lifestyle. But now he's got to get up early for once to discover what makes Arla, Arla. In this spot he hangs out with a Welsh Dairy Farmer named Barbara who displays her passion and professionalism (and patience for his Ricky Gervais-like antics) as Helms learns what it means to be an Arla dairy farmer. Coming from a Welsh background I loved this bit of content. And while the math is very familiar the casting is strong. Helms might be your usual sarcastic comedian but he doesn't come across as patronizing. My favorite line in the ad is when Barbara says "I hope that you take our message back to London," and Helms looks at the camera and says "Stay off our land!" Good stuff there.
