    A lot of the Christmas ads are starting to appear on TV now. Thought it would be nice to put them all in one thread so that we can see them all.

    Just saw the Argos one.



    I think the M&S one is due to appear this week so I'm looking forward to seeing that.

    im waiting for the m & s ads with a ady skimply clad in sexy lingerie prancing around on a bed .


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    M&S ad. There is lingerie but there is no prancing around on a bed. I'm not sure about it. It's not Christmassy enough for me.

    Have to agree def not Christmassy enough. Feels more like an Easter ad than a Christmas one. Very disappointed!

    M&S ad is a bit meh! They have been off form in the last couple of years.

    The Argos Ad is a nice one.


    When will John Lewis Ad be out? Well "By the end of this week, all the main retailers will have launched their festive campaigns"

    Don't like the Debenhams one either. If they'd chosen better music it might have been more Christmassy. The Lidl one is lovely and I love the Aldi one.

    I like the M&S ad, but what's with the cheap ass doorbell at 1:33 ???

    I don't like the little woods one. Obviously the inspiration is A Christmas Carol, but the idea of spreading out payments for Xmas from this year to next is abhorrent to me. The lighting in the add is also really annoying. Everything is slightly gloomy before Carolyn Moyrahan (is that her name?) turns up & then if you spread the cost & pay the interest, it gets all warm & cozy.

    Here's three of my favourite Xmas ads (both for American chain "Old Navy"), they ran last year & were super popular.







    Actually Old Navy Xmas are all great




    But for sheer sentimentality, the Guinness one. I get shivers when I see/hear this



    And on radio (I really think they should film this) Barry's Tea



    And how awesome is this product ???

    I'd nearly buy a smart TV with you-tube just to have that on a loop in the background.

  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 6,755 A V A


    that new m&s is a bit of a let down , same with debehnams bt to me nothing beats the john lewis add



  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    That John lewis ad gave me nightmares last year. So creepy. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with this year.

    Aw I love 2010 and 2011.

    I looked on their FB page and people are asking when the ad will be out and they just keep telling them to keep an eye on the FB page.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    This was on last year and it's back again this year. It's the American version but the one on TV over here is the same without the American accent. :) It's definitely the type of ad that gets me all excited about Christmas.

    That could be a classic. If someone just puts proper Christmas music over it.

    found the 2013 John Lewis ad on You tube, its really sweet


  • Registered Users Posts: 108 ✭✭ AshAdele




    New boots ad


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,905 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    The John Lewis advert is good, I think they missed a trick by having someone "known" sing a cover version though, it was always nice hearing new voices be discovered.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,012 ✭✭✭✭ Toto Wolfcastle


    I'm not sure about the John Lewis one. I'm sure it will grow on me though. I love that Boots one. It's a real feel-good ad.

    I like the Meteor one. I love the music and I want to wrap my kitchen in wrapping paper. :D
