All The Christmas Adverts 2014
John Lewis appeared to be leading the saccharin stakes last week, but Monty the Penguin has soon been eclipsed by Sainsbury’s mighty campaign harking back to World War I.
Released after Remembrance Day, the advert follows the events of the Christmas Day truce in 1914 when British and German soldiers played football together.
Like the John Lewis, Boots and Waitrose adverts, it keeps product placement minimal in a bid to push its heart-warming message.
The supermarket chain has teamed up with The Royal British Legion to create an advert inspired by the Christmas truce of World War I. It has very little to do with Sainsbury’s, but a nondescript biscuit and chocolate bar do feature.
The highly-anticipated annual John Lewis advert garnered more than 4.6 million YouTube views before it even aired on TV. The heart-warming advert features a young boy who finds his penguin friend Monty a mate for Christmas.
Mark’s & Spencer
Forget about the pictures of mouth-watering Christmas puddings, this year’s advert follows two fairies as they try to match make a couple to a version of Nat King Cole’s “Fly Me to the Moon”. M&S dazzled the nation with two secret fairies blessing the nation with small gifts of kindness to spread the social awareness a week before the advert aired and then everyone realised who the fairies were!

Waitrose has eschewed selling a consumerist dream, and chosen instead to focus on its employee-owned ethos. The advert sees a little girl putting a lot of care into making gingerbread for a school Christmas fair, with the strap-line “when you own something, you care a little more”.
Ever keen to prove it’s not all about the low-priced European imports, Aldi’s Christmas advert showcases some of its more expensive trimmings including champagne and smoked salmon blinis.
The department store’s unashamedly consumer-focused advert features children wreaking havoc on the shop floor in search of their longed-for presents.
The Boots advert features a girl who returns from her gap year as a surprise for her Mum who is a nurse working on Christmas day. It has minimal references to Boots and ends with the strapline ‘because she’s special’.

Some say it’s only really Christmas when the Coca Cola “Holidays are Coming” advert gets released on TV. TOTALLY AGREE! This year, the beverage giant has released another feel-good advert featuring the song “Make Someone Happy” by American jazz singer Jimmy Durante.
