What a little legend! Travel agent Thomas Cook has released a Christmas ad, under the new tagline ‘Leave it to us. You’re on holiday’, which features a Napoleon Dynamite look a like busting a move.

Thomas Cook has secured a
 much-coveted, 30-second slot throughout the Star Wars:The Force Awakens cinema at Vue, Cineworld, Odeon and a number of independent cinemas across the UK.

Jamie Queen, marketing and e-commerce director, said: “Our goal is to become Europe’s best-loved travel company. We released our full year results last month, and it’s our first profit after five years.

“This campaign is building on the success of the last year for Thomas Cook.”

Queen said: “We put a huge amount of work into understanding what our customers really want, and how their holiday experiences are changing.

“They want to experience their holidays with their partners, family and children, and they just want to have the permission to be themselves on holiday – leaving transfers and flights to us. That’s where the campaign comes from, that insight.”
