In BBC One’s ad for Christmas 2015 programming, an unloved sprout finds friendship with stars from Doctor Who to Sherlock.
It’s the tale of ‘Sprout Boy’ an unloved Brussels sprout, a sort of vegetable ugly duckling who’s turned away everywhere he goes. A baker, woodcutter and toymaker give him short shrift. However, finally the welcoming BBC stars (who aso include Will.i.am, Graham Norton and Mary Berry) give him a place at their table. Dr. Who actor Peter Capaldi narrates in his distinctive gruff Scottish tones.
The one thing that worries me — doesn’t “acceptance” lead to some child eating the star of the video?
The full version of the second video begins with a Night at the Museum scene and is available here
