Morrisons proudly presents… Christmas! The nation’s favourite duo Ant & Dec star alongside a new addition to the family – a singing, dancing gingerbread man called Ginger. A magical world packed with a delicious Christmas feast awaits, so go on… be our guest!
Our second contender for best Christmas TV advert comes from good old M and S who this year are taking JLP head on, they have managed to secure Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Helena Bonham Carter and David Gandy. The ad – which has a fitting tagline of ‘believe in magic and sparkle’ – begins with leggy model Rosie chasing her dog down the street on a cold winter’s night and then having to follow him down a manhole. Cue a nostalgic nod to Alice in Wonderland.
As she stumbles down the (rabbit) hole, she then finds herself at a tea party hosted by the Mad Hatter, aka David Gandy. Red Riding Hood, Aladdin and The Wizard of Oz – which sees Helena take on the role of the wizard – are also emulated in the sparkling Christmas ad, which was shot by London-based agency Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R.
Explaining the idea behind the ad, Marks & Spencer’s business development director Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne said: ‘With this year’s ad we wanted to recapture the magical essence of Christmas that our customers tell us is synonymous with M&S. Magic & Sparkle is an extraordinary franchise, which has always been a firm favourite with customers.
You know the Christmas madness has begun when the UKs biggest retailers premier their TV adverts and all vie for our precious pounds.
So this week we will feature the main contenders and on Saturday we will have a poll to see who you think has made the best Christmas advert 2013.
Today we start with John Lewis, who are always gate teed to pull at your heart strings.
