Christmas Television Adverts - John Lewis
The commercial Christmas is upon us. Shops crammed with Christmas non-perishables, although I did see Christmas puddings yesterday. They can last for a year if unopened I’m reliably told, but my informant prefers to wait until after Christmas and stock up at bargain prices.
According to Adweek the above video, ‘Monty the Penguin’, cost £1m to make and is part of the company’s overall £7m investment in the Christmas campaign.
Does it encourage you to buy at John Lewis?
These days there are always some geeks waiting in the background to capitalise on videos, but Redshirt Films are very smart and professional geeks. They’ve made a parody of John Lewis’s Christmas Advert.
Hope you enjoy. I did.
