Marks & Spencer: #FollowTheFairies
This year's Christmas campaign doesn't feature celebrities, but instead features two 'fashionable fairies'' spreading Christmas cheer to families around the country, helping them turn drab gifts into fab gifts. With the strapline 'magic and sparkle', the ad aims to capture the spirit of the festive season and will be supported by several spots featuring M&S Christmas food.
Sainsbury's: Christmas is for sharing
Set during WW1’s famous ‘Christmas day truce’ football match, the ad features a British soldier reaching out to a German soldier on Christmas day. The enemy forces play a game of football before going back to the trenches. The spot shows the British soldier gifting the German man with a chocolate bar, the likeness of which will be on sale at Sainsbury’s stores with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
Racking up 9m views on YouTube during its first week it had a mixed reception, with some celebrating it is a beautiful tribute, while others called it crass.
Baileys: Here's to us
Depicting groups of young women travelling across cities including London and Paris to meet up for a celebratory night out, the ad stars Baileys as their favoured tipple. Part of their strategy to persuade more women to drink Bailey's at bars and clubs, as the drink is typically bought on impulse in supermarkets.
This quirky 90 second spot, features a Christmas scene with a young woman opening gifts. Family rivalry overtakes the festive scene as each tries to outdo the other with elaborate gifts that include a portrait, a puppy and even a unicorn. But it's not until she opens her final present - a Mulberry handbag - that she jumps for joy.
