  • ジョンルイスhighly anticipated クリスマス ad divided opinion this week with some claiming the tale of an alien being welcomed to earth had ‘too much of a messagerather than a traditional festive theme.

    Now Matalan has stepped into the fray with an ad featuring an alternative nativity, with a young boy dancing around in angel wings.

    The young star of the show is seen putting on a play for his family with his sister riding in on a dinosaur wearing a robot head, before presenting a teddy bear to her brother to ‘lay in a little bed’.

    It’s not quite clear who is taking on the role of Mary, because his sister is dressed as a robot, while the boy is wearing a blue t-shirt.

    Everyone dances and rejoices that they don’t have to go to school and can have a party instead.

    The Matalan advert focuses on a little boy and his sister as they put together a very special Nativity scene.

    Dressed in festive pjs and cosy knits, the boy enrolls the help of all his family to create costumes and hang decorations before putting on a show.

    The boy explains Christmas is special to his heart because he gets to spend time with the people he loves.

    It then shows the boy and his sister reinventing the story of the Nativity.

    The family listens to the story and applaud, and the whole family begins dancing, as the boy concludes: ‘and no one has to go to school!’

    The short and sweet advert is set to the sound of 1970s band Pilot’s Magic.

    In the supermarket’s commercial, a family-of-four steps into their local Asda store to do their Christmas shopping.

    The mother looks around and spots Asda employees dancing around with trolleys to the sound of Ravel’s Bolero

    As she looks down, the mother realises she has been fitted with a pair of golden skates, and her two children and husband have their own pair as well.

    The family begins to skate around, as the vegetable aisle opens to reveal a hidden door.

    The family then pass a school Christmas play where a Christmas pudding cheers up another child dresses a lonely flame by holding her hand.

    The next scene is the mother’s office Christmas party, where she and her colleagues are seen enjoying cocktails while sitting on copiers that are moved by Asda employees.

    In the next tableau, lorry drivers deliver Asda products directly to the family’s fridge, while fireworks go off in the background.

    The parents then skate through a Christmas party at home where they both treat their guests to appetisers from the Asda Christmas range.

    The father skates through the door and goes to the ceilling, which is only lit by fairy lights and contains piles of mysterious presents.

    次に, Asda workers help the family dress the table for their Christmas dinner, putting down plates full of Christmas treats, including a scrumptious turkey.

    At the end of the dinner, the daughter twirls on her skates as the family cheer and clap.

    The dad then surprises everyone with a large round Christmas pudding from Asda, before the mother realises their daughter has falling asleep under the table.

    The advert ends with the mother putting her daughter to bed, smiling, and walking out.

    ‘Make Christmas spectacular, with Asda. From the big day to all the little days in between,’ a voice-over says as the advert closes.

    ジョンルイス’ highly anticipated 2021 Christmas advert has been slammed by social media users online for being ‘pathetically predictably woke.

    The retailer’s two-minute ad, titled ‘Unexpected Guest’, features a young boy introducing an alien to Christmas traditions, before she emotionally departs back to her home planet.

    It stars space traveller Skye crash-landing at the height of festivities in the woods near the home of 14-year-old Nathan, who introduces her to the traditions of eating mince pies, decorating the tree and, to her slight confusion, wearing novelty jumpers.

    Viewers have interpreted the ad as being about being inclusive of people who are different, and noted that it could echo the situation of a child refugee or acceptance and connection between people from different cultures.

    しかしながら, some were far from impressed with the retailer’s latest campaign and accused it of lacking ‘any Christmas emotion’ – with some even vowing to boycott stores.
