British Christmas Adverts – Part 2
Monday, 23 December 2019
(Part 1 is here.)
Following on from a week ago, today we have Part 2 of the 2019 British Christmas Adverts survey. It's not all of them, but a whole lot. Some are just okay and some are spectacularly good. All enjoyable.
In the videos below, the top line, in bold caps, is the title of the video. The second line is the name of the sponsor. Enjoy.
WHERE YOU SHOP MATTERS
In our online shopping era, people need to be reminded about their local stores. There are 13 real-life shopkeepers in this advert including a bookseller, greengrocer, antique dealer and café owner.
NICHOLAS THE SWEEP
To quote the YouTube page:
”150 years ago Sainsbury’s opened their first store and Christmas changed forever. Coincidence? Almost certainly - ho ho ho.”
LET'S MAKE CHRISTMAS EXTRA SPECIAL
Jack and Tilly spread Christmas magic around their town.
THE AMAZING ALDI CHRISTMAS SHOW
Witness the Flying Tra-peas, a guest appearance from bad guy Russell Sprout and of course, the star of the show - #KevinTheCarrot.
Many of the Christmas adverts are expensive extravaganzas. This low-budget video is just as heartwarming.
SILENCE THE CRITICS
This is the company's first Christmas advert.
GET MORE OUT OF GIVING
From the YouTube page.
”Very's Christmas advert tells the story of a community that comes together to give Sidney, a lonely man, a Christmas that he’ll never forget.”
This year, eBay promised no holiday promotions until November.
The goal, they say, is to break the monotony of gifting.
That's it – all the British Christmas adverts I have. Oh, except for this one that I posted on it's own about three weeks ago. It's my favorite of the year – maybe the best reunion ever – and worth a second viewing. Or third. Or fourth.A HOLIDAY REUNION
Merry Christmas, everyone.
All adverts can be wholly enjoyed when I have no need to shop.
Happy holidays in all its forms and feelings, everyone!
And if you want, find a space for 5+ minutes of gratitudes to connect with. Mine this season will be few, but deeply meaningful, including one Ram Das who figured importantly in my learning, developing years.
