Radar's Top 5 Christmas Adverts

Rated 5/5 (2 people). Log in to rate.

1. Marks & Spencer's   

The Marks and Spencer’s advert this year is a clear favourite. In the ad Paddington Bear saves Christmas in Windsor Gardens with a thief, mistaken as Santa Claus by Paddington. He then helps the thief rediscover the true meaning of Christmas. 

 It’s amusing and who doesn’t love Paddington? 

 

2. Debenhams 

This ad depicts a modern Cinderella where a woman loses her shoe on a train and young gentleman picks it up. She begins a media campaign called #FindMyShoe and he starts one called #FindThatGirl and they end up meeting on a snowy London street. 

It's Disney nostalgia and very much focused on love. What’s more magical at Christmas then a wintery love story?  

 

 

3. John Lewis

Meet Moz the Monster, he hides under a child’s bed and they begin to make friends.  But, when Moz realises that the child is struggling with being up all the time he gives him a nightlight and Moz the monster disappears giving the child a good night’s sleep.  

 

4. Aldi 

 Aldi’s 2017 advert brings about the return of Kevin the Carrot and his quest to find love. In this ad, Kevin finds Katie and tries to avoid the dangers of the dining table and jumps in front of some peas headed her way. 

 

5. Argos 

In the ad we see elves preparing for Christmas, but they forget to put one present in the pile and one of the elves goes running after it to ensure that the present gets delivered. 

Although amusing this advert feels like it’s been done before and it's even the plot of 'Arthur Christmas', but all in all, not a bad ad.
