Your house is important to you -- as are the things in it. So important, that from the carpet to the side tables to the alarm clocks, they're all part of your extended family. John Lewis Insurance presents a whimsical tale of a family portrait like no other in this newest spot out of Adam&EveDDB London. Directed by Dougal Wilson at Blink, the spot brings to life toasters and teddy bears in stop-frame animation, featuring them coming out into the garden for a posed portrait.

MPC worked on the elaborate visual effects for the spot. Funnily enough, even the insurance speak that appears in the frame towards the end to inform viewers that John Lewis even covers everything left in the garden, makes sense, since that's where the enormous "family" has gathered for the big moment.
