Here’s a selection of the best of 2020’s festive ads so far.
M&S has decided to drop a new advert every week until the new year, featuring the voices of famous actors as they show the range of luxurious food on offer this Christmas. The first advert featured Olivia Coleman telling viewers about the glittery gin and smoked salmon which can be bought this festive period (Photo: M&S)
This year’s Walkers Christmas ad - named ‘A Sausage CaRoll’ - features LadBaby singing about sausage rolls as he delivers the brand’s sausage roll flavoured crisps. A donation from each sale of which goes to food bank charity Trussell Trust this year (Photo: Walkers)
The McDonald’s animated Christmas advert, titled Inner Child, shows a mother trying to encourage her teenage son to get into the Christmas spirit, but every attempt sees him turning to his computer or phone instead. However, after starting a snowball fight with him following a trip to McDonald’s, the young boy embraces his Christmas spirit and helps her to decorate the tree (Photo: McDonald’s)
Disney’s animated Christmas advert begins in the year 1940, with a grandmother gifting her granddaughter with a Mickey Mouse toy. It then skips to 2005, where - years later - the young girl is now a grandmother, who passes the same toy to her own grandchild. The toy is loved at first, but becomes neglected over the years. The advert ends with the girl realising the bond between herself and her grandmother, and gifting her the old but newly mended toy (Photo: Disney)
