It's that time of year - Christmas Adverts...

Post by Boro Boy » Sat Nov 03, 2018 1:33 am

Yes the shops are preparing and the TV's have started showing the Christmas Adverts!!! Saw one from Curry's tonight, never seen a detailed advert like that from them before!

It got me thinking, what is members favourite Christmas Advert?

To get things started see my favourite from a few years back in Spain: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=sp ... &FORM=VIRE

Most adverts (Christmas included) are extremely boring and in my opinion a waste of the advertisers money. Just a necessary evil.

When I see perfume advertised I know Christmas is coming. Same as Ferro Rocher. Boring, pretentious ads will abound as per usual I guess

Seen Kevin already sigh but John Lewis and M and S usually do good ones but the enjoyment palls after so many views

I expected someone to come up with some infantile humour rather than respect for an honest opinion.

I read it in the sense Boro Boy was joking but we cannot hear his tone of voice of course.

The only good thing about Christmas ads is they make a change from the usual fare

Correct I was joking; I was smiling at the comments as WJ1 was fitting the norm of distain at my comments...

I don't agree regards the Xmas adverts, some are worth waiting for and could almost be called a piece of art especially when you find out how much goes into the making of them.

So what is your favourite/most memorable Christmas advert? :think:
