Mr Happy and Specsavers


This new ad from the creative team at Specsavers features an array of characters from the classic BBC TV series Mr Men.  The ad is centred around Mr Happy, who is unexpectedly grumpy.

The ad starts with Mr Happy lying in bed clutching a pair of glasses.  The voiceover informs us that Mr Happy’s bad mood is caused by the various offers that he missed out on by not going to Specsavers.  Then he stomps around the town falling out with the other Mr Men. 

The ad has been created by director Darren Walsh from passion Pictures’. Walsh studied the original animation in order to reproduce the retro 2D style, complete with the imperfections.  This follows last year’s ad with they use Postman Pat. (Below)
