DescriptionColour advert with sound, promoting The Observer's 'School's Out!' guide

The advert shows a black and white wedding photograph of a smiling couple, followed by colour footage of the same couple looking glum, a family photograph of their four children, and shots of them literally pulling their hair out. It ends with shots of the inside and front page of the supplement, and a final shot of the couple - now almost bald - looking resigned as 'The Observer' and the School's Out logo show on the screen.

Commentary: "Got any ideas to keep the kids amused during the summer holidays? Thought of things to do? Places to go? Projects to get up to? In the Observer this Sunday the first of a 6 part family survival guide, crammed with days out, competitions and vouchers for zoos, castles and theme parks. School's out, from the Observer. Good luck!"

The advert starts at 12.57 on the 1985-1995 'historical reel' mp4 file. Duration: 20 seconds.
