Christmas is almost here and (hopefully) most of your holiday shopping is complete. Now that the heat is off, you can kick back and watch some of our favorite holiday advertisements of 2018.

Have Yourself A Very Stress-free Christmas – Clas Ohlson

If you can handle this Swedish roller coaster of emotions, great. If you’re like the rest of us, I’m sorry that I can’t give you a tissue.

The Season of Good Dog – Pedigree


The pet narration makes this heartwarming Pedigree commercial perfect. It brings to light holiday family tensions but shows us that the holidays are about being with the people (and dogs) that we love.

Four the Holidays – Cricket Wireless

Cricket Wireless made their cartoon characters come to life in this holiday story of a group of friends going home for the holidays. Luckily, technology can keep them connected.

Kevin the Carrot and the Wicked Parsnip – Aldi


Here we have a Christmas  fairytale of a brave carrot named Kevin who stands up to “the root of all evil,” the Wicked Parsnip. This is just a really fun commercial.

Home Alone Again – Google

Google for the win! It’s a new look at a Christmas classic as Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as Kevin McCallister from the beloved Home Alone series. It’s nostalgia, its Christmas, it’s a win.  

The reason these commercials resonate so powerfully with the buying public is their ability to tap into our emotions. Whether you make them laugh, cry, or long for bygone days, the key is simply to make your buyers feel.
