Song Title: Man with the Bag.
Artist/Singer: Jessie J.

The soundtrack to Boots new snow-covered ad is provided by vocalist Jessie J, with her cover of the classic Christmas tune ‘(Everybody’s Waitin’ for) The Man with the Bag’. This new version was released as a single on the 8th of November, 2015.
With the man in question being good old Santa Claus, this big band song was originally recorded in 1950 by the American jazz/pop singer Kay Starr.
In case you’ve somehow never heard of Jessie J, she’s a 27-year-old British singer, famous for such tracks as ‘Price Tag’, ‘Domino’ and ‘Bang Bang’. She also appeared as a coach on series 1 and 2 of The Voice UK.
The lyrics you hear Jessie singing in the ad are: ‘Old Mr Kringle is soon gonna jingle, the bells that’ll tingle all your troubles away. Everybody’s waiting for the man with the bag, ’cause Christmas is coming again. He’s got a sleigh full, it’s not gonna stay full. He’s got stuff to drop at every stop of the way. Everybody’s waiting for the man with the bag, ’cause Christmas is coming again. Everybody’s waiting. They’re all congregating. Waitin’ for the man with the bag.’
Proving that John Lewis, M&S and Waitrose don’t have a monopoly on great sounding festive adverts, this ‘Discover More’ effort from Boots really delivers that winter wonderland feel.
Apart from Boots itself, the colourful commercial promotes such individual beauty brands as No7, Reiss, Superdry, Champneys, Soap & Glory and Gucci Bamboo.
The video above was added to the official Boots UK YouTube channel on the 5th of November, 2015.
