Thomas Cook Film New TV Ad on Lanzarote

 Thomas Cook, the UK’s largest travel company, knew where to come in order to encourage their customers to book their next break abroad. As their advertising agency are currently cooking up a new campaign right here on Lanzarote, with filming taking place yesterday in the former island capital of Teguise.

The new Thomas Cook campaign is planned to air on UK TV screens in the coming months and stars James Nesbitt, the famous Irish actor who recently took a lead role in The Hobbit. The scene we saw being shot yesterday featured a recreation of a typical Teguise market street scene, with Nesbitt getting caught up in an argument with a stall holder – leading to a duel between the two featuring some very un-Canarian saucission, which is then broken up as a Thomas Cook rep intervenes to smooth things over. Some local goats also enjoy a starring role!
