Brands embrace the Christmas (consumerist) spirit

Nothing gets brands more willing to spend dollars on advertising than a special event. Be it Halloween, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day or Christmas, brands throughout the world embrace the moment, throw caution to the wind and try to capitalise on the consumer frenzy that often accompanies these days. And in the lead up to to Christmas 2014, brands have not disappointed, delivering yet another entertaining dose of humorous and tear-jerking spots.   

Harvey Nichols furthers the spirit of selfishness. 

Metro celebrates the magic of the season.

This is not a Christmas ad. 

Santa ditches the sleigh. 

Musicians collaborate for a good cause.

Boots pulls at the heartstrings.
