Christmas Adverts 2019

(October 2019)

There are some basic short ads promoting offers with a slightly Christmas version of ‘pretty shining people’ by George Ezra in the background, but that is all.

Thinking about it (and then checking on YouTube) did they do a main one last Christmas?


That's a good point. The ad I was thinking they did last year was actually their 2017 ad so maybe they're not bothering with big adverts now and just going to do small ones focusing on various items.

Didn't they repeat their Free From ad?

Yes and no. I believe they had two versions in 2017. Only one in 2018.

It's not Christmassy as such but it's a new advert none the less. Viewers of a nervous disposition and a fear of Mr Blobby should not watch this! Razz

This is worth a click. I’m sure Quality Street tins are only half the size they used to be.....

Wasn't it Woolworths?
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I looked this up when I first saw that ad on YouTube, it was actually called Woolworth up until 1985, when ‘Operation Focus’ was implemented.

Another thing notable about that ad is you get a clear idea of what they sell. John Lewis may be considered the king of Christmas ads at the moment but anyone got a clue what they actually sell?

They're a department store (and supermarket if you include Waitrose), so technically they sell pretty much everything!

That Mr Blobby's an impostor. You can tell by the voice.

Not a Christmas advert but I see the Deliveroo advert has been banned due to being misleading, as it suggested you can order from umpteen restaurants all in one go and get it all delivered together.

At least Karen won’t have to worry about those Carbs anymore.
