#ContentCatchUp: the first festive ads of 2021

Author: Ember Television | Posted on: 18 November 2021


The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and – just as inevitably – Christmas ads are starting to hit our screens. The featured article in this week’s #ContentCatchUp takes a look at how this year’s offerings from the big brands are drawing on a mood of hopefulness and optimism after the strangeness of last year’s festive season.


“Whilst 2020 and Covid-19 meant many creative studios and agencies couldn't film in their usual settings, reaching instead for animation and stop motion, this year seems to present quite a mix of mediums. Overall, there's a mood of optimism and joy as many of us prepare to spend a "normal" Christmas with family and friends when many of us couldn't last year.”
