    Really like them- I think a lot of people have just struggled through this year, and listening to people boasting about how they ran a marathon, took up yoga, lost 3 stone, began cello lessons, started baking, learned French etc. is pretty disheartening.

    I think it's just enough to come out the other side of 2020, and it's a good message. :)

    Very well put. I think its hugely important to recognise that the vast majority of people didn't excel during the pandemic and did incredibly well by just getting through it with their sanity intact.

    Good post posy.

    McDonalds still has the edge for me but it’s close. Could sway after a few more watchings.

    Has the Woodie’s one been shared? Simple. Predictable but I liked it a lot

    Thanks for posting !
    After seeing the stills from the set in D8, I was very curious to seeing the ad !
    It got me misty eyed, in a good way.
    I like it !


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,065 ✭✭✭otnomart


    That's lovely. I like the comments! :D
    The comments are gas !
    Never mind the three degrees of separation, it seems that everyone has someone involved in some capacity in the ad !

    Thanks !


    I much prefer the Irish 'warts and all' version !

    I think those Tesco ads are terrible!


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,183 ✭✭✭✭Autosport


    I’m loving the Woodies ad but the Tesco one does nothing for me :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,945 ✭✭✭DvB


    Not loving the tesco ones either I must admit.

    I just saw the Coca Cola one there on TV. :)

    Has anyone seen the Guinness ad yet? It’s my favourite one and it’s usually one of the later ads to come on. That and the Cornflakes ad really make it feel Christmassy. :)

    Vaguely remember someone telling me its December before guinness start their Christmas advert. At least in Ireland anyway... think in the UK it shows up a little earlier.

    Say it every year... its the best Christmas advert ever, will never be beaten IMO.

    Budweiser, Guinness and Cornflakes are classics but for me nothing comes close to the Sainsbury one from a few years ago about the world war 1 Christmas truce.

    Have to agree. Coca cola runs it close though!

    Lost me at 'this season'. Is a Christmas ad a Christmas ad if the company don't say or have clear that it's Christmas? There is a good podcast episode on Cant wait for Christmas about the war on Christmas. How is it not applied to other religious celebrations.

    It's not other religious at war at Christmas... it's retailers they want to open the holiday up for ALL religions and try to dilute the Christianity aspect of it as much as possible.

    I'm all for it being open to everyone as Christianity stole it from the pagans anyway. But I hate the refusing of calling it Christmas.

    You're not going to be converted if you call it Christmas....

    and this is from Great Ormond Street Hospital and Charity (UK)
