The Top 10 Best Holiday Commercials
There is nothing like some Holiday Commercials to get you in the joyous spirit. In looking back to all of the Holiday Commercials that remain vivid in our minds, we have filtered out the top 10. Whether they are heartfelt commercials, asthetically pleasing, or extremely funny commercials, this list is full of memorable Holiday cheer that may even raise a spark in your memory of the Holiday season.
10. Hersheys Kisses - Christmas Jingle Commercial
This simple and classic commercial adds delight to the holiday season with the jingle played by the hersheys kisses. I always had glass bowls filled of those Holiday wrapped kissed during the season and it brings me right back to all of the joyous festivities that come this time of year.
9. Folgers - Home For the Holidays Commercial
Ok this may be the sap in me, but I love this Holiday commercial. The best part of the Holiday season is being able to see friends and family that you havn't seen in awhile. It is a time to reunite with loved ones and spend quality time with one another. This commercial resinates with any reunited family during the holidays and brings out the true meaning of Christmas.
8. Puffs Plus Tissues - Holiday Ice Skating Commercial
I remember when Puffs first came out with these Clay-mation, "Nose in Need" commercials for the Holiday season and I immediatly loved them because they reminded me of the old clay-mation holiday films that play every year. The narrative voice in these commercials also related to a Dr. Seus-type work as seen in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The puffs nose in need clay-mations continue to play with different seasonal scenarios, but the first Ice-skating commercial made will always be the most memorable for the Holidays.
7. Target - Crazy Lady 2-Day Sale
I just love these target commercials with the crazy shopper lady who warms up for every 2-day sale in her full out red jumpsuit. This line of humourous commercials poke fun at the chaos of the season and this woman hits the nail on the head. Since 2010, this crazy target lady has been featured in Holiday Target commercials and I hope she continues to carry the torch for Holiday Seasons to come!
6. Direct TV - Christmas Villians Commercial
This is a hilarous scenario in which all TV and movie villians are seen doing good deeds for the Holiday season as a family brings Direct TV into their home. You can see Freddy Kruger cutting flowers for the home and Dracula joinging the party as a way to show everyone putting aside their differences and enjoying the Holidays together. Pretty Clever Direct TV!
5. Virgin Mobile - Chrismahanukwanzakah
One word: HYSTERICAL. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this ad from Virgin mobile, highlighting mobile data plans for all Holiday Celebrations in an extremely funny and catchy jingle. I havn't seen this commercial on for about 7 years now, but I do wish they bring it back. Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah everybody!
4. Holiday M&Ms -Christmas with Santa Commercial
M&M has done a great job in maintaining these two M&M characters for a long and successful campaign, but this holiday commercial is one that I will never forget. When the two M&M's realize that Santa Exists, and in return, Santa realizes that the M&M's also do exist, it makes for a really funny commercial. M&Ms, being candy, did a great job playing on the belief of Santa Clause for young kids during Christmas.
3. Campbells Soup - Snowman Commercial
Talk about Nostaligia! This Ad has been playing every Holiday season since 1995. I remember it vividly from my childhood and how I loved that the Snowman melted back into a boy when he ate his Campbells chicken noodle soup. Not only is the soup itself a reminder of being a child and bing served warm chicken noodle soup during the cold weather months, but this Campbells commercial has established itself throughout the years as an iconic staple in the holiday Season. Mmmm Mmmm Good.
2. Coca Cola - Holiday Truck Commercial
There is no christmas without the Coca Cola Truck to light up the streets on this Holiday Commercial. Very much like the classic Brand of Coca Cola, this commercial is filled with nostalgic memories growing up as a kid and spending christmas with family and friends - and of course decorating with lots of christmas lights!
1. All State Car Insurance - 12 Days of Mayhem Commercial
This commercial is awesome, not just because it is hilarious to see a personified form of "Mayhem," but it is spot on in capturing the mayhem that often times comes with the chaos of the Holiday season. I like how this commercial makes light of all the little things that go wrong when your stressed during the holiday season, reminds me of a Griswalds Christmas!
