    I like it too, it's simple and the festive touch at the end, perfect.

    That's all Christmas Ads need to be, nothing too fancy or over the top.

    Anyone see this before? Its part of the 'backstory' to the John Lewis 2018 advert allegedly. Quite emotional IMO.

    Even though there are loads of fantastic Christmas ads, I don't think any ad will ever beat the Coca Cola trucks for me!

    Its a classic. Though my personal favourite is the Guinness one. I know its Christmas when I see that 'live' on TV for the first time each year.

    PC World launch their Christmas ad now.

    Not feeling it.

    My favourite one is not on the telly - it's the Barry's Tea ad that does be on the radio! It's my favourite! I just love it! Gives me goosebumps every time I hear it!

    They've really missed a trick by not moving it to tv, it would still work.
    Even nowadays with the fancy toys, the nostalgic feel will hit home!

    Do it, Barry's!!

    Oh no, I love that it's not on the telly! I think the radio makes it even more nostalgic!

    No I disagree, I think the fact it's only on radio that lends to the magic of it all. It's so vividly described you can almost visualise it anyway.

    I like that Curry's ad!

    I actually realised this myself after I posted it.
    The fact its on radio makes you picture the scenes all the more!

    I retract my remark!

    Argos Ad 2018..



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




  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 21,326 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc


    Love love love the Kevin ad. Love that it ends on a cliffhanger :pac:

    Hate the Argos one. That’s not very Christmassy.

    We must be watching the same thing! I just saw it too.... confused it with the coke truck ad


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,098 Briggs Long Honeysuckle


    I don’t like either of those ads. I especially don’t like the Kevin ad, it’s wrong to be using a truck in a Christmas ad if it’s not Coke! :pac:


  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 21,326 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc




    Asda’s offering this year. I really like it.

    If you haven't checked out Aldi's Insta page yet, you should! It's very clever.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,589 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    I'm surprised Aldi didn't have copyright issues with their ad!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,380 ✭✭✭ chuckles30


    I'm a big Kevin fan....and I love that he's back but I have very mixed feelings about the truck concept....it's messing with the classic coke concept. Thought Aldi could have done something original instead....after all they already have a great character to start with

    I reckon the Coke marketing team was more than happy to approve it. Free publicity!
