Christmas Ads Past and Present

Thoughtful Man sent me something to watch on Arse-about-Facebook this morning. A Christmas ad from 1978…

*Crikey! That brought back memories, Clicky… /lights up… Packed with stars of yesteryear…*

*Thirty years apart butt…/flicks ash… also packed with stars, Clicky…*

Apart from the quality of the production, the biggest difference between the Christmas ad of 1978 and the Christmas ad of 2017, is that one concerned itself with selling products whilst the other is selling an idea

‘Unlike John Lewis’s famously tear-jerking adverts of 2011 to 2015, the tone of Moz The Monster is more in line with last year’s lighter ad, Buster the Boxer.’

Clicky and Franks take on the M and S Christmas Ad

*/:O… He does?! Go and get it Clicky… /deep drag… For Dear Reader…*

*/squints… Moor covfefe-coloured chillin, Clicky? *

Of course, the M&S advert doesn’t feature any products either but it is flogging a movie

Butt what of Moz?

*No, Clicky, the one under the bed… /relights fag…*

*Knot lanky Cleese, Clicky… /rolls eyes… Although… /coughs… At least that one’s short…*
