Generally at Christmas, we talk about the worst commercials that we get bombarded by regularly throughout the season. The worst offenders are always jewelry companies who seem to enjoy making the worst commercials possible. There have been some bad ones this year (although not nearly as many) for sure but I want to show you one today that is simply fantastic.
This is the Sainsbury Christmas ad for 2014. We here in the colonies don’t have Sainsbury so this isn’t a commercial most Americans would be seeing this year but it is just too good not to get shown to everyone.
Sainsbury Christmas Ad 2014
Pretty good no? This is based on actual events that happened this Christmas 100 years ago in 1914 during WWI. You can read more about it because I don’t want to bore any of you with the history of the Christmas Truce of 1914, but it’s a pretty good story of humanity in the face of what was, at the time, the most inhuman event in human history.
Thank you Sainsbury for making this commercial. Remember the spirit of this holiday everyone and have a merry Christmas.
