British Christmas Adverts – Part 2

(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
Visa

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
Sainsbury's

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
ASDA

Jack and Tilly spread Christmas magic around their town.


THE AMAZING ALDI CHRISTMAS SHOW
Aldi

Witness the Flying Tra-peas, a guest appearance from bad guy Russell Sprout and of course, the star of the show - #KevinTheCarrot.


MORRISON'S COLLEAGUES
Morrison's

Many of the Christmas adverts are expensive extravaganzas. This low-budget video is just as heartwarming.


SILENCE THE CRITICS
Ikea

This is the company's first Christmas advert.


GET MORE OUT OF GIVING
Very.co.uk

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.”


HOLIDAY CHILL
eBay

This year, eBay promised no holiday promotions until November.


GIFT DIFFERENT
TK Maxx

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
Xfinity/Comcast

Merry Christmas, everyone.


Comments

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.

Thank you Ronni.

Am I allowed a favourite? Well, I’m picking one anyway. It’s the Sweeps!

Merry Christmas All!

Some fun entertainment. And a happy holiday to you and all bloggers everywhere!

I also liked the Sweeps.

Happy holidays to all

ET is my favorite, too! Happy holidays to you and all here!

Right back at 'ya--Merry Christmas, Ronni, and all loyal TGB'ers (is that a word?)!

Thank you Ronni
Seasons greetings for everyone!
