Creative Wave – 13th November *CHRISTMAS AD SPECIAL*

IT’S A BUMPER CREATIVE WAVE CHRISTMAS AD SPECIAL

This years Christmas ads have got the whole BBD Perfect Storm office talking!

Deck the halls etcetera… lets get reviewing!

Debenhams

Lianne: the modern love story is a little bit cheesy… but it is Christmas,

so pass the port. Left me feeling… that I’d quite like those sparkly shoes.

Laura: VOM Ewan MacGregor can’t save this one – SO NAFF

John Lewis

Andrew: I can see my son asking for Moz the Monster as a present this year

Jamie: It’s just becoming a parody of itself, I didn’t not like it – they’re always undeniably cute. Just would love to see them shake it up a bit.

Lianne: It feels like this formula has been followed one too many times. Left me feeling… bored.

AND I’M NOT INCLUDING WHAT JAKE SAID ABOUT IT BECAUSE ITS TOO RUDE

M&S

Laura: I find the Ben Wishaw voiced, CGI Paddington SO CREEPY. It’s quite a sweet story, but not for me.

Lianne: Fantastical stories still need to have some believability, but I wasn’t buying the robber’s redemption. Wasted potential of a classic character. Left me feeling…empty inside.

Aldi

Antonia: Proof that you shouldn’t do sequels.

Lianne: Although I did LOL at the pea joke, this sequel’s flimsy story made

it clear that Kevin’s fifteen minutes of fame are over. Left me feeling… like carrot cake.

Tesco

Lianne: Less original than Amazon’s 2016 vicar and imam ad, but relatable and true. Left me feeling… warm inside.

House of Fraser

Laura: Really enjoyed the video collage style of this one! Didn’t really get the Bring Back Merry message though!

Boots

Lianne: Interestingly, both Boots and House of Fraser chose to show Christmas through the relationship between two sisters. For me the winner was Boots’ simpler executions. Left me feeling… like I do have a heart after all.

Sainsbury’s

Laura: At first I thought “Oh no” but it had definitely won me around at the end!

HO HO HO!
