All Christmas 2021 commercials – from alien magic by John Lewis to Percy Pig by M&S

Last year, the retailer’s announcement emphasized that despite the pandemic, many of us had found new ways to be creative during the lockdown.

Now Hobbycraft has gone for one that delivers a simple message, centering the story on the sense of accomplishment and happiness you get when you give and receive something in your hand.

Entitled Moments We Make, the 30-second film is composed by Leeds folk group The Dunwells, who composed the track of the same name for the publicity.

The full song version will air on Hobbycraft’s in-store radio.

The ad is all about saccharin, with scenes including a woman painting and wrapping baubles, children making Christmas cookies, and a mother and son making Christmas wreaths together.

If he is sweet and full of good times with his family, he falls a bit flat with the others.

The heartbreaking story of the Unexpected Guest, which has parallels to ET, centers on an enigmatic young alien whose spaceship crashes into the woods on Earth.

Stranded Skye, played by Raffiella Chapman, 14, is found by wide-eyed Nathan, played by Jordan Nash, also 14, who lives nearby.

Nathan visits his new boyfriend every day and teaches him the festive traditions, from the must-have Christmas sweater to the installation of fairy lights.

Having never seen a pie, she stuffs a whole pie, including the foil, into her mouth. We watch her joy at seeing snow for the first time and the heart-wrenching final scene as Skye sets off for her home planet with a farewell gift from Nathan’s personalized sweater with a lighted tree and a star matching that of her spacesuit. .

As she leans in to kiss him on the cheek, millions go for the emotional ending handkerchiefs that have become the hallmark of the retailer’s epic party ads.

The soundtrack, a powerful stripped back cover of the 1984 hit Together in Electric Dreams sung by rising star Lola Young is destined to climb to the top of the charts.

The two-minute commercial first airs on television this evening during the 8:15 p.m. break in the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards on ITV.

My John Lewis loyalty card holders can view the ad online from 6.30am today and it will be on their website for everyone from 8.00am.

The merchandise is expected to sell with versions of Nathan’s Christmas sweater priced at £ 29 for adults and £ 14-18 for children.

And Londoner Jordan said: “Once the ad goes out, Christmas is here.”

Tom Holland plays Percy Pig

It’s not just a Christmas ad … it’s an M&S Christmas ad, and for the first time it features their ubiquitous oinker Percy, which started out as a bag of candy and is now found on cakes , cotton sheets and clothes.

Called Percy’s First Christmas, in the commercial, Percy is voiced by actor Tom Holland – and it will premiere today at 8:40 a.m. on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Percy is joined by comedian Dawn French who voices a festive fairy sitting atop a Christmas tree who brings the stuffed pig in her gift box to life when she accidentally drops her wand in the M&S Foodhall in Stratford Westfield, London, after security the guard left for the day.

Percy then walks the aisles to find all the party foods they have on offer this year.

As the fairy describes what it’s all about for Percy, there are close-ups of caramel dripping on Christmas pudding, smoked salmon placed on bread, and chocolate panettone.

Dawn called her role in the commercial “the best gig in the world,” adding, “Christmas is M&S food, isn’t it? So when the call asks you to be a part of M&S Christmas commercials, it’s pretty much a guaranteed yes – I mean they’re so iconic every year.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man star Tom said, “When I was asked to be Percy’s very first voice, it took me less than a second to say yes.”

Disney






The ad is called The Stepdad

It wouldn’t be Disney without a lot of magic, and this year the company has gone all out.

Called The Stepfather, it follows Nicole, the granddaughter in last year’s story who racked up 106 million views, who has now grown up with her own family.

The three-minute film shows Nicole’s new husband, Mike, moving into the family home with her and her children Max and Ella, and the four, shown below, tentatively navigating their first Christmas together.

Featuring no dialogue, the soundtrack is by soulful singer Gregory Porter, whose catchy song Love Runs Deeper was written for commercials.

At its heart is the concept of family friendliness.

After Mike brings his things, we see Nicole reading the stories of Max and Ella Disney in a storybook Max received from her father.

As they turn the pages, Disney characters including Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Pocahontas come to life.

The video supports the Make-A-Wish foundation. Drawings of some of the real kids as charities can be spotted on the screen.

True tearful for a good cause, this advertisement is one that will warm the hearts of the greatest Scrooge.

Boots






It stars actress Jenna Coleman as Joy

Boots collaborated with Oscar-winning Anglo-Australian director Tom Hooper – known for The King’s Speech and Les Misérables – on this year’s campaign focused on the joy of spending time with loved ones.

Called Bags of Joy, it stars actress Jenna Coleman as Joy, a woman getting ready in her bedroom for a night out. After reaching for a bag given by his grandmother, with the note “This is what Christmas looks like”, he begins to produce seemingly endless gifts.

Surprised, Joy then tilts the bag onto the bed, gleefully hopping into a huge stack of Boots products, including a Dyson hairdryer and a skincare set from Rihanna’s Fenty line.

Next, we see Joy going to a Christmas party, where she pulls out a Polaroid camera from the magic bag, gets balls to decorate the family tree, a comfy hat and scarf to wear on a ride on a waltz. at a fair and even false eyelashes to beautify a snowman.

At the end, we watch Joy return the favor to her grandmother by offering her a bottle of perfume with a card saying, “This is what love smells like.”

“I love Christmas and have always loved Christmas movies,” said Jenna, 35. “Celebrating family, togetherness and the simple joy of giving mixed with a healthy dose of festive magic and charm was so poignant this year.”

While this focuses on products, the ad – which aired Saturday during the Jonathan Ross Show on ITV – delivers the moving moment Joy reunites with her grandmother at the end.
