With the holidays approaching, we are showered with Christmas Ad’s. They make us laugh, cry and certainly help us get into the festive spirit. Here are Zooppa Europe’s favourites.
1. ‘I have something in my eye..’
UK retailer, John Lewis is the king of the British Christmas Ad. Year after year, they surprise us with heart-warming stories and music. This clip is about six-year old Lilly who discovers a man on the moon whilst watching the stars through the family telescope.
Why it is loved so much? It’s a gentle reminder of how many people have no one at Christmas and deserve a little affection, no matter how far away.
2. ‘The Battle of Christmas’
It’s time for the battle of Christmas – old vs. young, the grandma against the grandson. According to our Italian Zooppa team, Ikea’s Italian Christmas advert represents a typical Christmas day in the country of all things tasty, fuelled with a good boost of irony.
Ikea reminds us of the messy preparations where everyone thinks they know best, but at the end of the day, we all sit down and enjoy a lovely meal together.
3. ‘Where are the tissues?’
Get your tissues ready. Seriously. If you’re eyes stay dry during this video, you may be a robot! German supermarket, Edeka has yet again triumphed after their success with their ‘Supergeil’ advert from 2014. Agency Jung von Matt’s creation is melting our hearts with a story about an elderly man – spending Christmas after Christmas alone.
His daughter calls, ‘I just wanted to call and let you know that we can’t make it again for Christmas this year… we’ll try again next year. It’ll work out, I promise. Merry Christmas Daddy!’
After the family receives message of his parting, they all meet again at the memorial/funeral and find a set table. The believed dad father and grandfather comes out of the kitchen, exclaiming ‘How else could I have brought you all together?’
