National Lottery - A Christmas Love Story / Just Imagine (2022) 3:30 (United Kingdom)

Directed by Oscar-winner Tom Hooper, the ad tells of a chance encounter between two people who meet on a train and exchange a phone number on the back of a lottery ticket. 

Soon the girl realizes the phone number is smudged, and viewers are left on the edge of their seats wondering if the pair will meet again. The tension mounts as the news breaks of an unclaimed winning lottery ticket.

The ad is set to a new arrangement of George Michael’s ‘Faith,’ performed by artist Sleeping At Last. The full length, three-and-a-half minute commercial will appear in cinemas, with cutdowns appearing online and on TV.
