K.A.C. 2018 - T - 17 ...
Not to be outdone, the CATS Protection Christmas ad is making the rounds of the Internet and is based on a true story, that of the bond between 11-year-old Evie and her cat Genie. But it's not just a story about their friendship - it's about their time together (and apart) during a very stressful year. Rather than tell you more, how about you click on the link below:
What the heck, I hear you say! Aren't there any HAPPY ads this year? Well, yes, but Not Just Yet ... first, take a look at our last entry in the Crying Christmas Contest - the most impressive part of this ad? It was made for less than £50!
OK, let's reverse course here and get to the more cheery UK ads of the year. First up is perennial pixie Holly Willoughby with the Marks & Spencer ad, the theme of which is "Must Haves" - take it away, Holly!
Next up is M& S's main competitor, John Lewis, and their advert is rather interesting and well done, even though it does slide a bit back into maudlin territory. Starring and focusing on Sir Elton John, it's a 2 1/2 minute time-traveling epic that shows the importance of how Just The Right Gift can influence someone's life. Take a peek!
Coming Tomorrow: From ads that work to ads that HORRIBLY FAIL, we take a look at this year's WORST ads, including a few that should have NEVER seen the light of day!
