    Barneys New York’s holiday web movie stars many Barney’s Private Brands and its creative director Simon Doonan taking a humorous turn as The Cranky Elf. This is not for every retailer but it definitely captures the essence of Simon Doonan and is a great commercial for Barney’s.

    As Simon says, “Have a witty Holiday.”
