With one of the year’s biggest festivities around the corner, brands are gearing up with their Christmas spots that are out to put a smile on your face.
Following Coca-Cola’s brilliant response to Aldi’s knockoff of its iconic Christmas truck and IKEA’s adorably delightful merry ‘Liftmas’ ad, comes this humorous spot by Vodafone UK starring beloved British actor Martin Freeman.
Picking up from last year’s Christmas entry where Freeman’s character falls in love with girlfriend ‘Clare’, the couple attends this year’s festive get-together, only to discover that ‘Aunty Sue’ is joining the party unannounced.
This leaves Freeman’s character in a panic since they hadn’t purchased a gift for her.
Thankfully, ‘Clare’ saves the day with help from Vodafone’s 4G network, leaving one very relieved Freeman expressing his reassurance through a graceful, not to mention dramatic, figure skating performance in the nearby rink.
Let Freeman show you how to ‘Glide Through Christmas’ from Vodafone’s ‘#ChristmasCovered’ campaign, made in partnership with creative agency WPP Team Red comprising Ogilvy UK and Wavemaker.
