Christmas Adverts 2017 – Part 4

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.

Boots now…

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!

 

Mince Pie Reviews – November League Table Update

Figured it was worth updating the league table and because some people do miss it (it’s linked seperately either in the hamburger menu on a phone or up top on desktop).

Miles away at the top is the Fortnum & Mason pies, but it’s looking like a strong list.

For reference, the columns in order are “Year of Review, Packaging, Presentation, Filling, Taste Test and Overall Score”. The table is ordered by Overall Score, with Taste Test as a tie breaker (then Presentation then Filling and finally Packaging if all of those are equal).
