It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…. especially since every second ad on the television and radio is a jingle-filled festive siren.
We all know advertisements are powerful; they can make us laugh, cry, and take us back to those precious childhood moments, but there’s something extra special about Christmas ads.
Here, One4all look at advertising gems that are all about embracing that Christmas magic:
Penneys – Get A Whole Lot of Things for Christmas (1996)
We love everything about this animated 90s festive wonder. From the super-cute wide-eyed boy excited for Santa to the clever product placement, this takes us right back to our Christmas childhoods.
Kellogg’s Cornflakes – Waiting for Santa (1991)
This was all of us, every year.
Yellow Pages Ad – Mistletoe (1992)
This quick-thinking lad wasn’t going to let being on the short side stop him from getting a kiss under the mistletoe.
ESB Going Home (1980s)
Whether you’re at home or abroad, this ad epitomises the feeling of going home to your mum at Christmas time.
Coco-Cola – Holidays Are Coming (1990s)
You know it’s Christmas when you see the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck driving through snow-filled towns to the ‘Holidays Are Coming’ jingle.
6. Guinness Ad – Dream of a White One (2011)
Despite the fact our Emerald Isle is ill-equipped to deal with snow, this ad is utterly magic. All of us have wanted to wake up to a white Christmas morning, and this captures how beautiful Ireland can be when it goes white.
