DFS Double Discount Sale TV Advert (1997)

The advert begins with the DFS logo, and then pans out to show a map of the United Kingdom. The map is then covered in red SALE symbols, these then group together and then zoom towards the screen. This then transitions into a DFS showroom with various more graphics appearing on screen. At around the 18 second mark the voiceover changes to a woman and we see two products which are on sale and their prices. This then cuts back to the male voiceover with an on-screen graphic showing the local stores in that region.

A shorter variant was also broadcast at only 10 seconds long – featuring a sped up voiceover and no female voice over part.
