Despite Noddy Holders typically overzealous approach it is true, Christmas is just around the corner and with it we see the return of the much loved and sometimes loathed Christmas adverts. Those heart-warming adverts that never fail in conning us into believing that these multinational corporations actually care about our feelings - and not just our monies. So this here blog is a showcase of a couple of our favourite Christmas ads of the year.
The next one is definitely towards the UP spectrum on the tearjerkameter scale and it's the Christmas offering from Boots. It tells the short story of a nurse finishing a presumably long shift on the evening of Christmas day - as she is driving home it shows other people arriving at airports and setting off in cars but gives no indication of the destination or relation to one another. As the nurse arrives home she walks past the glass living room door to see the outline of people and the warm glow of light only to open the door and see her family waiting to greet her with a late Christmas just for her. Presumably, though this isn't shown, they then shower her with classic boots gifts like make-up, those shower pack combo things and a luffa. It may be another generically heart-warming AdMas but it's a particular string tugger so it's makes our list.
Coca Cola, the old Christmas advert heavy weight champions, are back this year with another festive feast for eyes. It's as Christmassy as a snowman throwing up tinsel and it's all about the act of giving - it shows people giving each other umbrellas and throwing surprise discos and is all wrapped up by the 'Give a little happiness' slogan. Coca Cola never fail to deliver and we don't know who they get the play Santa in their ads but he should be Santa in EVERYTHING....the man is Christmas personified.
