Well there are many brands that release that special ad around this time of the year that kick starts the season. Here is my tribute to the top ads this year.

Apple Christmas Ad 2017: Move someone this holiday.

Featuring the iPhone X and AirPods two New York City dancers Lauren Yalango-Grant and Christopher Grant, who are married in real life. The story is about how Apple AirPods transport them into a different world to the amazing soundtrack by Sam Smith.

John Lewis Christmas Ad 2017 : Moz The Monster

Moz is just adorable! The story is about Joe who befriends a noisy Monster under his bed but the two have so much fun together that he can’t get to sleep, leaving him tired during the day. For Christmas, Joe receives a gift to help him finally get a good night’s sleep.

And in my opinion the Tagline “For gifts that brighten their world” is pure genius.

 

Also the click through is brilliantly placed.
“Click here to continue the story and make your own monster” Which takes you to landing page that allows you to create your own monster.

Coca Cola Christmas Ad 2017

I don’t know what it is, but coca cola owns the holidays don’t they?. Always takes me back many years.

Amazon Christmas Ad 2017 : Give

For some weird reason I feel like I have seen something like this before. Nevertheless, it plays in your mind for sometime.

Aldi Christmas Ad 2017 : Kevin & Katie

Kevin the carrot returns in this tale of love. Love the titanic reference at the end.

Boots Christmas Ad - Show them you know them

Not your seasoned veterans in christmas ad hall of fame, but they have struck an amazing chord here. In my opinion “Show them you know them” speaks volumes.

M&S Christmas Ad 2017: Paddington & The Christmas Visitor

M&S has their best foot forwards with paddington promoting the hashtag #LoveTheBear. Predictable humor not short of bringing the spirit to life. Personal opinion : not a big fan of the Tag “This Christmas, let’s spend it well”. Specially the use of the word “Spend”.

The Argos Christmas Ad 2017 : Ready for Take off

The Argos elf races through the snow to make sure no-one is disappointed this festive season. The message “Get your presents delivered from as little as 4 hours” is loud and clear.

Tesco Christmas Ad 2017 : Everyone’s Welcome

Very different families celebrate Christmas  in their own unique way. The right amount of humor and the amazing soundtrack is brilliant.

Sainsbury’s Christmas Ad 2017 : Every bit of Christmas

Sainsbury’s Christmas advert squeezes every bit of Christmas into a wonderfully fun and festive song, sung by people all over Britain. The use of B&W is interesting. and over 4mn views at the time of me writing this  seems to suggest people like the quirky nutty nature to this video.

Sky Cinema Christmas Ad 2017 : Nothing Brings people together like a movie at Christmas.

Well, Can see what they were going with this. Not a big fan but judge for yourself please.
