    Simon Bird is the latest celebrity ambassador to appear in a television commercial for the Post Office, starring in a fully integrated travel campaign that brings together in-store activity, TV, digital marketing, and outdoor advertising. Additionally, the Post Office will be interacting with customers on social media through the campaign hashtag #HolidayFeeling.

    In previous campaigns the Post Office has featured popular celebrities such as Peepshow star Robert Webb, who fronted the brand's 2014 Christmas campaign, appearing alongside a whole cast of stars including Pixie Lott, Amanda Holden, and Gino D'Acampo. Other celebrities enlisted by the Post Office include Sir Roger Moore, Ray Mears, Dame Joan Collins, and Bill Oddie.

    The new partnership with Simon Bird aims to increase the Post Office's reputation amongst young people, and as the star of both The Inbetweeners television series and movies, Simon is perfectly positioned to connect the brand with the emerging digital generation, whilst also still appealing to the Post Office's core audience.

    Speaking on the new collaboration, Simon Bird explained: "It's a pleasure to be a part of this campaign and work with a well-loved national institution like the Post Office. I jumped at the chance to dust off my wheels and dip into my now-legendary portfolio of ice-cool, popping-fresh dance moves."
