I love everything about this ad. The music, charming Mews house in London, but most importantly, the Diana-inspired actress.
On the topic of Diana, what a fitting car as well, since she had a predilection for modest hatchbacks, owning everything from an Austin Metro to multiple Ford Escorts.
Not only did they hit the mark with the car, but the situation is an eery bit of foreshadowing. Since just a few years later, it would be revealed that Diana’s marriage was in shambles as well. The creators of this commercial could never have imagined how right they were...
She was the epitome of compassion and grace, the icon of a generation...and although she was deeply unhappy in many aspects of life, I hope that somewhere up there, Diana is driving off in her modest little hatchback....smiling
