Marks & Spencer’s Christmas Ad Preview & Top Picks!


For 10 and a half months of the year my standard TV routine for a program on ITV or Channel 4 is to Sky+ and start watching  30 minutes after it begins. Endless gocompare and adverts drive me insane! Around about now though, that changes, as I must say I’m a sucker for all things Christmas, including the adverts. So, call me sad, but I was pleased to see that this year’s Marks & Spencer’s TV ad will debut at 8.15pm on Saturday.

The M&S ads are always mega Christmassy and this year’s is no exception, starting with a snow filled park scene, in which the M&S models, dressed in winter woollys, walk to the camera and playfully toss a snowball to the tune of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

The advert then jumps off into various scenes, showcasing different ranges from office chic, to party time, to sleepwear and then finishing with their new kids range.

The advert is called ‘The Greatest Hits this Christmas’ and each scene has a different track, Office Chic has Mr Big Stuff, Party Time has INXS One Of My Kind, Dreamy Sleepwear Lady Marmalade and the Kids range Celebration. This is the second advert to feature an INXS track recently, after the fabulous Palmoma Faith’s amazing version of Never Tear Us Apart for John Lewis.

If you can’t wait until Saturday you can preview the ad here.
