The International Christmas Adverts 2018 – Part 2

Happy 2019!!!

It’s been a bit difficult to find lots of Christmas ads from across the world, but here’s some I’ve been able to pick up via YouTube.

China – KFC肯德基2018圣诞季炸鸡配电脑女生周冬 (KFC 2018 Christmas fried chicken with computer girl)
So here’s a Chinese girl who I believe is in Shanghai is working her way through December. She loves KFC. She can’t even get away from work to go home to see her family. And so she ends up in KFC eating loads of fried chicken.

Berlin – Christmas. Never out of fashion, Zalando 2018
Here we have a choir of people wearing clothes from Zalando, a high street German retail store. I thought saw a Judi Dench look-a-like towards the end of the commercial.

Spain – Así es el anuncio de la LOTERÍA DE NAVIDAD 2018 (This is the announcement of the Christmas Lottery 2018)
Yipee! My favourite Spanish Christmas ad! Here we have a man who goes through Groundhog Day until he gets it right when he and a cafe owner win the lottery. This man is a bit of a grumpy one.

France – Le Noël inoubliable de Bouygues Telecom (The unforgettable Christmas of Bouygues Telecom)
OMG! What’s with the father’s dancing?! LOL. But at least the father gets to have a new smartphone to at least video call. ^_^

USA – Audi Presents: New Santa
And we end it here with a wanna get fit Santa. He wants an Audi. So he needs to get fit to get into one. Or look good in one, because I’m sure even a chubby person could drive the car.
