Well, I’ve gone to town on rounding up the Christmas adverts this year…here’s another bundle of ads for you to check out…
First up, it’s Waitrose:
This is actually really quite good, I’m not sure being in black and white quite works, for me when the lights come on at the end if the advert went into full colour then, that would have been a little more dramatic.
A comment on Youtube amused me for once though (never read them, just don’t do it), where the horrified looks at the end are because they’ve gone all cannibal…made me smile anyway.
I have no opinion on this…none at all. Which is weird, utterly unmemorable.
Now TK Max meanwhile, they’ve had a good go here:
I quite enjoyed that, creepy voiceover and everything!
And, now Debenhams, this might say Part 2 but this is the full version, you don’t need Part 1 as that’s already included in this…
Boy oh boy, is this romantic or what! Very very sweet advert this.
Debenhams winning Christmas, alongside Sky Cinema for me!
So, here we go then with another round up of Christmas adverts, the over budgeted influencers for 2017…
Let’s kick off with John Lewis…
Transparently trying to play at heart strings…fails miserably. For me anyway.
Next we have House of Fraser:
I’ve met sisters before…getting on this well…naaaaah, not buying it at all!
Next, we have a pair of Morrisons adverts:
I really love the Free From one, just really very sweet. The other one, a bit meh but pleasant enough. Good effort from Morrisons.
Now for Tesco…and I like this a lot:
The bloke at the end “Oh, go on then”…that’s just like me on Christmas evening…
And Talk Talk…nailed it:
We already started our roundup of Christmas adverts for this year with this post: https://themincepie.co.uk/2017/11/04/christmas-adverts-2017-its-started/
That one featured Very.co.uk, Argos, Asda and Vodafone…this time, we’re kicking off with one of the biggest hitters, going in two-footed on the rest:
This advert is pretty good, light and fluffy despite it being all about a burglar. My only problem with this advert is the “Oh F**k you little bear” at the end. Pretty sure M&S need to re-edit the sound here, because WOW! I’m not the only one to hear this too, it’s all over the comments. Oh M&S, what did you do!
Next up, it’s Matalan:
I can’t help it, I like it. Maybe the music needed to be something Christmassy, but it’s everything Christmas wrapped up in an advert otherwise.
Not really much of an advertiser normally, here’s Amazon’s distinctly unChristmassy effort:
And for this update I’m going to finish on Sky Cinema…because it’s perfect (I really mean that too, for parents out there everywhere, it 100% nails it)…
