Holidays are coming – Top Christmas Adverts of 2014

TheCity.ie reporters, Leah King and Amy Grehan, recently braved the cold and took to the streets of Dublin to find out what the public’s favourite Christmas ads of 2014 are so far.

As we could have guessed, the original Coca Cola Christmas ad was the number one choice for most, both young and old. As one interviewee said: “You know Christmas has begun when you see the Coca-Cola ad on TV and hear the words ‘Holidays are coming, holidays are coming’.”

The Coca-Cola Santa Claus, created by artist Haddon Sundblom back in 1931, is famous throughout the world and helped to define the look and personality of the modern day Santa Claus.

Another popular choice among the public was this year’s John Lewis Christmas ad, which follows the adventures of Monty the penguin.

According to John Lewis: “This year’s advert tells the story of a little boy, Sam, and his best friend, Monty the penguin. This is a tale of friendship, love and giving someone the gift they’ve been dreaming of this Christmas.”

Other popular Christmas ads included those by Guinness, Sainsburys and Marks and Spencers.
