The Week in a Tweet: A round up of the latest Christmas ads

We’re loving the Christmas adverts that have hit our screens this past week. Here’s a round up of some of our favourites.

Visa’s high street focused Christmas campaign

In a bid to give their Christmas campaign the edge, Visa have put the focus on where to buy from this Christmas. Focusing on the British high street, the advert shows real shop owners performing a rendition of ‘All I want for Christmas is you’; the advert brings a sense of warmth and community and sheds light on the issue of the declining high street. Visa are hoping to see an increase in purchases made in smaller stores over the festive period.
