Sainsburys World War I Christmas Advert: Watch Now

Sainsbury’s could have taken the crown from John Lewis this year, with a 4 minute advert about the trenches on Christmas Day in World War One.

Many of us know the story about the troops playing football together, both the English and the Germans, but this portrayal gives the story real context and depth.

From the YouTube upload, Sainbury’s gives the following statement:

Made in partnership with The Royal British Legion, it commemorates the extraordinary events of Christmas Day, 1914, when the guns fell silent and two armies met in no-man’s land, sharing gifts – and even playing football together.

With the major retailers and supermarkets with their Christmas Adverts all out, which do you prefer? Has Sainsbury’s made a film to rival John Lewis’ Monty the Penguin?

Marks and Spencer Christmas Advert 2014: Magic and Sparkle

No celebrities for Marks and Spencer Christmas Advert

From the Marks and Spencer Christmas Advert

The Marks and Spencer Christmas Advert for 2014 brings back the notion of ‘magic and sparkle’ from last year’s advert, but in the form of two fairies. M&S have gone the ‘non celebrity’ route, and actually it seems to work very well. Watch the advert in full here:

The advert, to the soundtrack of Julie London’s Fly Me To The Moon, is enchanting, with sweet references to family time and also finding love. What do you think?

Do you think it compares well with John Lewis’ Christmas 2014 Advert?
