The ad - developed by Karmarama, part of Accenture Interactive – comes is part of Plusnet’s new campaign, That’ll Do, delivering a message to customers about value.

Sam Calvert, Marketing Director at Plusnet, said: “We wanted to make something that summed up how people feel about seeing the back of 2020 in a fun way, while also getting across the message of what That’ll Do means for us here in Yorkshire.
