Watch Wes Anderson’s charming Christmas advert for H&M

A small, perfectly-formed Christmas bauble is delivered by express train care of American director Wes Anderson. This delightful miniature made for the clothing brand H&M sees the maker of Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel flexing his commercial muscles to filter his unique style into a compelling sales pitch.

He ushers in some of his celebrity pals, including Adrien Brody, and sends them on a snow-swept train journey which, at one point, transforms a the corridor of a sleeper car into an ad hoc catwalk. For those counting the days until Anderson’s forthcoming animated feature, known only as a “dog-based” story, this should very much ease the pain. Even making adverts, his minutely choreographed tracking shots are still to die for.
