You know the festive season has officially arrived when Christmas adverts start dropping on TV. If there’s anything to make us feel warm inside, it’s the emotional rollercoaster of ad breaks come November. No longer do we use the moment to make ourselves a cup of tea, but instead we settle in to watch the two-minute adverts that tug on our heartstrings and make us laugh out loud.
While it’s the John Lewis Christmas advert that usually turns us into a bubbling mess thanks its annual heartfelt messaging, other retailers have upped their festive game. Who can forget last year’s M&S Christmas food advert, with a cheeky cameo from Tom Holland as Percy pig? Or Aldi’s Kevin the Carrot’s return each winter?
This year, we’re expecting a whole host of sentimental commercials, hilarious characters, and recognisable scenes to get us in the Christmas spirit. From comedy geniuses French & Saunders reunion to the tear-jerker that is Disney’s offering, scroll ahead to watch the best Christmas adverts of 2022 so far.
