Our Favorite Holiday Campaigns of All Time

by Brandon Berte on December 18, 2015

It’s the holiday season, which means advertisers are trying extra hard to tug at our heartstrings. We’ve already seen a plethora of heartwarming holiday ads for 2015, but today we’re going back in time. Below we take a look at some of our favorite holiday campaigns ever:

Our Favorite HolidayCampaigns of All Time

1. M&Ms – “Faint” (1996)

Nobody can forget this classic M&Ms TV spot — despite that fact that it’s a mere 15 seconds long. The ad, also known as “They Do Exist” and “Meeting Santa,” is comical, endearing and relatable all at the same time — a sweet spot for television advertisements. Watch below, and be prepared to start believing again:

2. Folger’s Coffee – “Peter Comes Home For Christmas” (1986)

“Home for the holidays” takes on a whole new meaning in Folger’s 1986 holiday commercial. Watch big brother Peter come home and surprise the family with a fresh-brewed pot of coffee on Christmas morning. Everybody can relate to that feeling of reconnecting with loved ones, and here, Folgers reminds us that a home is all about the familiar aroma of a good cup of Jo.

3. Coca Cola – “Seal and Polar Bears” (1997)

Coke began aligning its brand image with the holiday season in the early 20th century — a truly brilliant move. Perhaps the most memorable of its long history of Yuletide ads is this one, in which polar bears seem to forget that they’re higher in the food chain than seals. Watch Coca Cola make holiday magic occur between would-be enemies in the animal kingdom:
