    Do you need links to ads or will just saying 'the Guinness one' do??

    Links are encouraged as some companies have multiple famous ads, I'm looking at you John Lewis.

    If you can't get a link a tag line description will do.

    Example Guinness - "Home of the black stuff" will do as we will all recognise it.

    When do nominations close? :)

    Pure nostalgia. Always makes me a bit teary, and especially during Christmas 2020 when so many people couldn't come home for Christmas. :(
    But... it will be so much more special when people can see their loved ones again and have that hug like the mammy in the ad.



    Pure nostalgia 2.0. Can't hear that music without having flashbacks to the childhood excitement of the festive season!



    Pure nostalgia 3.0. Loved Budweiser this advert as a child. The music, the horsies, the Christmasiness. :D

    Next batch, starting with the one that still makes my stomach do flips when I hear that music starting-

    It's a classic radio ad, that's why I left it open to all ads as I knew someone would nominate it.

    Not sure I've seen it mentioned yet but the ESB ad from the 80's




    Then the obvious winner... right - got to be Pennys



    Denny - just too cute


    Finally, the often overlooked Coca Cola Polar Bears from the 90's

    Although I always said they missed a trick by not ultimately having the old lad living across the street (but may as well have been on the moon he was that lonely) I liked this John Lewis one. Nowhere near as good as 'the journey' or 'the bear & the hare' but worthy of a nomination IMO.

    Technically this was an advert, it was BBC advertising its own christmas season in 2017 and I loved it at the time.

    +1 for the Heathrow bears, actually. Love that one! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,692 ✭✭✭ DvB


    Dare I say it, have we lost our collective appetite for the christmas tournaments!? Or are we all just too busy these days?
    Seems so much quieter the last week or so.

    Just to clarify as I was not up on the last tournament:o

    Is it nominations first ?

    Followed then by a short list and then a final vote:D

    Or am I all wrong:confused:
