Friday Five Favourite: Christmas Adverts 2018

30 11 2018

It’s back! Advent starts tomorrow and I think all the major companies have released their Christmas adverts now, so here are my top five for this year! (Next week I’ll share five that didn’t quite make the list…)

Sainsburys (mostly for Plug Boy!)

KFC

Waitrose (it was a tough call between the below and this one)

Aldi (Other entries this year here, here and here!)

Lidl

Advertisements




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!
