Since it's release in late January, Sainsbury's have celebrated the joys of preparing food and healthy living with an effervescent use of real people and a freshly-minted music track in the ad Food Dancing, directed by Siri Bunford at Knucklehead.    

Sainsbury's ad agency Weiden & Kennedy commissioned the song from UK hiphop artist MysDiggi (who has Sainsbury connections; his mum works for them in store), and then Bunford directed people from all over the UK dancing to the track in their own kitchens.

And it gave the director the chance not just to make the TV spots but also a music video in the same naturalistic style, with more people, more excellent dancing, more Mysdiggi - plus a cool, full colour section featuring some of the ordinary folks parading more of their impressive dance moves.

The fact the longer version has garnered far more views on YouTube than the 60" ad - in fact it has now passed a million views - confirms that this is a branded music video that really works.
