It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s December and most everyone is in full holiday mode, including retailers. Perhaps the most significant cue that winter and the holiday season are near, is the appearance of ever-so-familiar holiday commercials from various brands. The sentimental value placed around the holiday season makes it perfectly okay and almost heartwarming to see brands share holiday wishes with commercials that are not only familiar to the consumer, but also help stir up a warm sense of nostalgia. I wanted to share a couple of my holiday/seasonal faves with you all. Enjoy!

Have you seen this spot from Nissan? I love it. It’s funny and it’s simple. They’re taking their new innovative feature and making you think how effective it would be in other situations, and they do so in a very comedic manner. It gets the point across and brings it home in a way that is relevant for many people. Enjoy!
