We’ve scoured the universe (Youtube) to find the funniest, most festive and best Christmas adverts of all time.
1. IRN-BRU, 2006
We always knew there was something dodgy about that snowman!
2. True Blood, 2011
You know when you buy someone a present just because it’s something you’d like to receive…
3. Target, 2011
Feeling festive and completely unhinged. We love her.
4. Yellow Pages, 1992
A true classic.
5. John Lewis, 2013
Before Monty the penguin, came the bear and the hare. Short animated film + slightly melancholy soundtrack + sentimental ending = the formula that is making John Lewis a serious competitor for Coca-Cola in the ‘it’s not Christmas until we run our ad’ department.
6. Woolworths, 1983
For 6-year-old-you, a trip to Woolworths was the best part of Christmas, and this little Cockney musical number perfectly sums that up. Look at all those toys – and those prices!
7. Warehouse, 2012
8. Coca-Cola, first aired in 1995
We had to put them in – they did invent Santa after all!
