You know the saying “Better late than never?” Well, it took 21 years but it was well worth the wait! M & M’s released a sequel to their 1996 Christmas commercial that’s aired every year since then.
We all know this classic holiday commercial but in case you need a refresher, or if you’re just like me and can’t get enough of it, here it is:
The sequel starts off right where we left off- with Santa and Red fainting. It’s up to Yellow to save Christmas! Yellow soon finds out that delivering presents isn’t as easy as Santa makes it look. The good news is that everything works out in the end.
There have been so many great Christmas commercials over the years so let’s take a trip down memory lane! How many of these do you remember?
Nobody does Christmas commercials better than Coca-Cola! From the Christmas trucks to the polar bears and everything in between, it’s hard to choose a favourite!
2. Corn Flakes
Admit it- you stayed up late or woke up after mom and dad went to sleep in hopes of sneaking a peek at Santa. I know I did! I think that’s why Corn Flakes’ 1991 commercial holds a spot near and dear to my heart.
3. K-Mart – Joe Boxer
K-Mart got cheeky in 2013 with their Joe Boxer Christmas commercial and stirred up quite the controversy in the process!
To this day when people ask me what my favourite Christmas commercial is, it’s this one. It cracked me up back in the day and it still makes me laugh whenever I think about it. I think we can all relate to thinking we have everything under control only to find out what we don’t. I miss Zellers.
Cheerios turned Scrooge’s frown upside down in their 1989 commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios!
Titled ‘Frankie’s Holiday,’ you can’t help but get the warm-fuzzies when you watch Apple’s Christmas commercial from last year (2016). It might be relatively new but it will be a classic for years and years to come!
7. Campbell’s Soup
I spent a lot of time playing outside in the snow growing up- I’m sure I came inside looking like a snowman on more than one occasion. There was nothing better than coming in and having a hot bowl of soup to warm up! Campell’s Soup nailed this commercial in 1993.
Simple and sweet. It might be almost 30 years old but the Hershey Kisses ‘Holiday Bells’ commercial is just as good today as it was when it was released in 1989.
