American car brand Chevrolet has teamed up with the new LEGO Batman Movie - on a lifesize LEGO Batmobile.

The incredible installation (and the stuff of childhood dreams) is appearing at car shows in North America, while a tongue-in-cheek ad and webpage also buy into the idea.

The ad sees LEGO characters working as a focus group, asking what type of person would drive a Batmobile. Batman remains in the background throughout, challenging certain opinions, such as the lack of a backseat would mean the driver would have few friends.

We’ve covered a lot of Christmas ads, but our favourite must be Allegro’s ‘English’.

Set in Poland, the ad follows a pensioner as he learns English with the help of products he finds on Allegro (the country’s popular online marketplace).

He takes to his task with a touching enthusiasm, exclaiming phrases on public transport and sticking Post-Its to everything in sight – including his dog.

While it gives him a new lease of life, the reason behind his determination isn’t clear until the end of the ad, when the moving truth emerges.

Watch the pensioner’s pursuit of language below and let us know your favourite Christmas ad this year.
