John Lewis Christmas Advert

The crown jewel of Christmas adverts!  John Lewis have been pulling on our heartstrings since 2007 with their annual Christmas advert surprise.

Always the most hyped of all the Christmas ads to hit our screens, it’s also typically the most divisive.

This Year: For 2022, John Lewis’s Christmas advert – ‘The Beginning’ – takes us on an intriguing journey as we watch a gent ‘of a certain age’ learning to skateboard.  Mid-life crisis?  Or perhaps something a little more.

ASDA Christmas Advert

Another of the big supermarkets that pulls out all the stops … it’s the ASDA Christmas Advert!

This is not just a Christmas advert.  This is an M&S Christmas advert!  And in fact this is TWO M&S Christmas adverts!!

This Year: M&S Food Christmas Ad sees the return of French & Saunders as Fairy welcomes Duckie to her festivities.  Be warned: do not watch hungry!

McDonald’s Christmas Advert

Are you Reindeer Ready?  McDonald’s festive menu may not be your classic Christmas dinner.  But that doesn’t stop them bringing out the classic Christmas adverts!

This Year: Another sentimental offering for 2022 as a young boy creates a huge kite-tail of a list for Santa.  Turns out there’s only one thing he really wants though (and it’s not a Big Mac!).
