Friday Five Favourite: Christmas Adverts that didn’t quite make the top 5 – 2017

8 12 2017

After last week’s winners, here are those which didn’t quite make the cut

6: Debenhams
A cute, modern day twist on Cinderella, just slightly too much social media for my taste

7: Sky Cinema

8: ASDA
I liked the concept, but felt it could have been executed better

9: Tesco

10: Argos

Friday Five Favourite: Christmas Adverts 2017

1 12 2017

It was a tough one this year, my shortlist was about 10, and I’m still not sure I’ve got it right – I don’t know if I should penalise some for being nothing to do with the actual company they’re advertising, or what about companies I’ve never heard of – but after much deliberation, here are the worthy winners! (Results from previous years can be found here)

1: McDonalds
I absolutely loved this, though my colleague and I debated the ending as he wasn’t so impressed. We agreed that maybe the Dad should have taken the cheeseburger for himself if Father Christmas only eats mince pies….

2: Aldi
A great sequel to last year’s entry

3: Barbour
Literally no idea who this company are, but if they’re doing a sequel to The Snowman then that’s easy points right there!

4: Marks & Spencer
Feels like more of an advert for Paddington than M&S, but that doesn’t stop it being lovely.

5: John Lewis
The product placement is obvious, but such a sweet story!





Friday Five Favourite โ€“ Christmas Adverts 2016

25 11 2016

So here we are, the top five! Last week I gave you those that didn’t quite make it, and now, in a slightly rough and very changeable order, here are my five favourite Christmas adverts this year!

1: Aldi

2: Whiskas Temptations

3: Waitrose

4: John Lewis

Of course this comes with some excellent spoofs, one based on vermin, the other on the presidential election.

5: Lidl

Lidl

Asda – this is mainly for the car covered in fairy lights ๐Ÿ™‚


I haven’t put John Lewis in this year, mainly due to the science issues….! That said, a good remake has been done, so as a bonus, please enjoy the below:

A late entry from the Co-op!

Friday Five Favourites: Christmas Adverts 2013

13 12 2013

Quite a few feel-good, inspirational Christmas adverts around this year ๐Ÿ™‚ Wasn’t a fan of the John Lewis one this year – I’m less against it now, but it just doesn’t explain it’s own plot very well, and definitely not worth ยฃ7million

Coca Cola – quite a different message to normal!

Boots – it’s been a bit overplayed this year, but I do like it

Sainsburys – love this one, particularly spreadsheet man, and the family at the very end ๐Ÿ™‚

Carphone Warehouse – bit of a more light hearted one!

Marks & Spencer – everyone loves a spoof of childrens’ stories ๐Ÿ™‚





Tuesday Three Favourite: Christmas Adverts 2016 that missed the boat

28 03 2017

Woops so I just found this in my saved drafts where I was clearly trying to get it up to five and then forgot about it. So rather than wait ’til next Christmas, thought I’d just bung this up now – sorry! For alliterations sake, it’s Tuesday!
