Christmas ads!

Recommended Posts

Love em or hate em its that time of year again.

I love the Waitrose one where they have a speeded up version of Jingle bells so they can get to the chocolate mince pies.

I like the Boots one too. 

Elton Johns as much as I like him as a musician I dont get it. 

Anyone got a favourite?

Have only seen the Iceland one on this side of the pond. (BBC doesn’t do commercials...) Will have to google the others.

I do quite like the Sainsbury one and think the John Lewis one with Elton John is somehow quite sweet and touching. He is not my favourite musician, but the message is strong.

Wish I could do the clicky link business. The best I have seen is the tear jerking £50 Christmas ad. Big retails take note, you don’t need to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds. If you google it,it will come up.

btw the whole clicky linky is no fuss anymore. Just copy paste it it will turn clicky on its own!

I have to admit that there are no ads that have really 'done it' for me this year. All a bit disappointing really - bah humbug! Usually there is at least one outstanding one but, for me, not this time round. Or maybe I'm just getting old, cynical and jaded :???:

Aw, that’s lovely Cats Tails. I was just thinking of my mum today. Christmas as you get older changes, too many empty seats.

I was going to suggest the KFC advert but wasn't sure how well it would go down being about eating chicken.

I really like the hedgehog advert though Cat tails.

Love the one with the mum and daughter working together. I assume she's a ghost. Yes I agree too many empty seats. Friends become family.

These are the only two ads I've seen!  I haven't even heard Noddy Holder - that's a plus!  Love both ads though, even if one was sad and spooky in a nice way.

Mrs Fussy has found one that she does like! The Waitrose one where they all set off down the drive for a bracing, snowy Boxing Day walk only to turn round at the gate and head back inside for something delicious, sweet and squidgy (from Waitrose, of course!) whilst remarking on what a great walk they have had and how they have worked up an appetite!

What!  Do they not have chickens and therefore trudge down the garden in the wind, rain and mud?  Now that would work up an appetite!😅
