It’s hard to believe it but Christmas is already upon us, 31 days to be exact! With the success of the John Lewis ads in recent times it seems that everyone is jumping on the creative Christmas bandwagon of releasing a ‘Hollywoodesque’ TV advert. In no particular order we chart the top five creative Christmas ads you’ll see this year!
‘’Mog’s Christmas Calamity’– Sainsbury’s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuRn2S7iPNU This ad features Mog the cat, the character from the popular children’s book series by author Judith Kerr, encountering a number of sequential calamities which ends up with him ruining Christmas. It all seems like a bit of a disaster until the impromptu happy ending. Well worth a watch!
‘Gift face’ – Harvey Nicholas.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaqWcYn4uBk We have all been there, having to pretend we like something when really we don’t. Well this year, Harvey Nicholas have given us an idea of how to avoid the ordeal of having to pretend you like an unwanted gift.
‘A few of my favourite things’ – Aldi
[su_youtube url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6qx7U_SuQE”] Already on our TV’s and hard to not find yourself singing the song after the ad. All things Christmassy from Aldi here!
‘Just can’t wait for Christmas’ – Argos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw7tPrEvrhU An all action ad here from Argos, playing on their introduction of their ‘fastest service ever’. The ad was shot on a mountainside in Chile’s Valle Navado and features a team of 50 snowboarders and professional skiers. A truly epic creative Christmas advert.
‘Justino’ – Spanish National Lottery
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY3vQTrCn7I This ad certainly plays on the heartstrings and has attracted large media attention for doing so. The advert follows a lonely night-time security guard at a mannequin factory and ends with a heart-warming twist. And the good news is you don’t need any level of Spanish to be able to understand and appreciate the video! So there we go, our list of the top 5 most creative Christmas adverts this year.
