Marks and Spencer: Seb White Models

Oh finally. About time. And hoo-bloomin-ra!

A major high street chain are using a child with a disability in their tv ads.

It's also the first time that M and S aren't employing celebs in their Xmas advertisement. 
Presumably following data suggesting that consumers felt the brand was out of touch with the average person.

Seb White is a gorgeous little boy that we know 'virtually' as he also features with Natty in the Jojo Maman Bebe catalogue for AW12. Marks and Spencer took him on after his Mum Caroline posted a photo of him on their Facebook page.

You can see a sneak preview of the ground-breaking ad here. I bet you'll love it as much as Natty did. Go Seb, go!
