In 2014 Burberry
used the youngest Beckham, Romeo starred in Burberrys first Christmas campaign
in a 4-minute video. The video tells the tale of a young couple falling in love all in
Burberrys trademark trench coat. In the advertisement it
shows the outerwear, the way they started. The video has 10,547,867 views with 21,195
likes and 1,157 dislikes which shows that this has been a successful campaign. The Guardian have stated that “Sales of Burberry
coats, bags and fashion climbed 14% to just over £600m in the three months to
the end of December.” Choosing Romeo Beckham as the celebrity endorsement ended
with a positive outcome for Burberry’s sales. Sharkey L.I.N.D.A (2014) says “The
dimple-cheeked son of David and Victoria Beckham stars in the campaign” also
Mann A.N.D.R.E.A (2014) “says and it stars the young and impossibly cute Romeo

was or how he is the son of The Beckham’s but then after it comes to talk about
the campaign itself you lose a bit of focus by the previous part. It would
better to have more information on the campaign as I feel like it is taking away
the focus from Burberry itself but essentially people are going to buy products
because he is young and adorable.
