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.





Boots' Christmas ad celebrates the 500,000 women who will not be with their family this Christmas Day, instead working to keep our country running.

The heart-warming ad sees the Boots team treat 45 real women to ‘The Gift of Beauty’, providing a pamper day and makeover to recognise the amazing work they do over the festive period.

Women from various industries, such as paramedics, midwives, farmers and police officers, were brought together for the day, ending with a final ‘reveal’ to friends and family.

H&M has launched its festive four minute ad - and it's directed by the one-and-only Wes Anderson.

The ad follows the story of a vintage train diverted due to treacherous weather conditions, meaning passengers are unable to get home for Christmas.

Passengers are offered a complimentary Christmas on-board by the conductor, played by Adrien Brody, where they socialise in harmony - and in glam H&M clothes.

Apple has released its new festive ad, with a rather quirky take on opening our hearts to everyone.

‘Frankie’s Holiday’ follows Frankenstein’s Monster as he tries to make friends at Christmas, recording his music box on his iPhone and using his neck bolts as bulb holders.

At first, the villagers seem less than pleased to see him, but with the help of a little girl, Frankie can deliver his present and make friends at the most wonderful time of year.

Heathrow has made its mark on the Christmas ad scene with a lovely tale about two elderly teddy bears.

The minute-long ad follows Mr and Mrs Bair as they navigate their way through Heathrow Airport, helped by staff along the way.

Set to ‘I’m Coming Back’ by Chas and Dave, the story is surprisingly heart-warming ‒ with a final twist that compounds the feel-good factor.

UK advertisers are set to spend a record-breaking £5.6bn this year in the run-up to Christmas.

With high-profile Christmas ads from John Lewis, M&S, and Sainsbury's already on our screens, there's no doubt there are many more to come!

This record breaking figure is £300 million more than 2015 and the most ever spent during the Christmas period, according to Advertising Association/Warc.

ONEHOPE Wines is a charity-oriented wine company - so you might expect its ads to be focused around the work it does.

But in its latest ad, the company takes a bit more of a lighthearted approach, parodying traditional wine ads with a monstrous rich kid character called Charles Faircloth.

The ninety second spot follows Charles as he saunters through his family's fictional vineyard, describing his decadent whims and unsympathetic nature - which extends to making people dress up as giant chess pieces.

But as the ad draws to a close, he makes it clear that if you do want to make the world a better place, there are ONEHOPE Wines.

The Christmas tradition is back for another year ‒ and thankfully this time, it’s not a tearjerker.

But come Christmas Day, guess who’s first on the gift?

Cadbury's Milk Tray Man has finally made a long-awaited return to our television screens!

Chosen from a sea of 20,000 applications for the prestigious role, fireman Patrick McBride won the competition and appears in the brand new ad.

Our new Milk Tray Man can be seen skydiving from an aeroplane over treacherous terrain, before riding a white horse through the dark of night and, of course, finishing with a delivery of a Milk Tray box - all because the lady loves.

Watch the full ad below and tell us what you think of the Milk Tray Man's return.







Ever had an idea for an ad that you dream of making real? Some lucky New Yorkers have been contributing their own ad concepts for a fun 'streetsourcing' campaign for Asus.

Two improv artists asked members of the public to come up with their own quirky ideas, which were then combined into what the campaign describes as 'the best ad ever'.

The ad, called 'The Alien and The Dinosaur', includes a dinosaur chase on a tropical beach and an alien at a house party - sadly someone's idea of cats that turn into men didn't make the cut.

Promoting the launch of the Asus ZenFone, the ad is designed to show that the phone can ‘empower people to do anything they want’.
