The Stores and Other Christmas Adverts 2018

Happy Post Christmas! Continuation of Christmas ads! You might as well enjoy them until the new year starts.

Onto the super store’s Christmas ads of 2018. I’m just going to be one liner opinions rather than go into each one. Ratings below each ad.

Debenhams – do a bit of you-know-you-did-good
Too cheesy. The grins and big smiles looked quite unappealing to put it politely. Can’t say anymore.

Argos – The Christmas Fool
We have a Gollum in the house of Argos who likes to ruin Christmas. Cute.

Had to include the KFC ad here! LOL! It’s chicken versus the turkey in the snow! Love it!

Heathrow – The Heathrow Bears Return
Typical ad. Bring back the family before Christmas. Well it’s lucky that Gatwick didnt make an ad. LOL!

Parcelforce Worldwide
Well, when did the Grandmother fly in from Florida? The parcel must have arrived just before she left… right?

Burberry – Close Your Eyes and Think of Christmas
Dark, scary, looks too much in the past. Distasteful ad.

Always has to involve The Snowman. Boring.

Favourite ad in this post: the Boots one. 😄

This year’s ads are mostly under 2-3 minutes long! Woohoo. No more long ads. Financial pressures are under way throughout the UK. I felt it this year, as I only received 4 Christmas cards. LOL.
Make sure to keep saving for 2019!
