Asda Christmas ad still

Asda has unveiled its ‘Let’s Make Christmas Extra Special’ TV advert centred around people who go the extra mile to “spread joy throughout the festive season”.

The advert features a young girl spreading “leftover magic” form Santa inspired by a story from her Granddad. People waiting at the bus stop are turned in to Gingerbread men, the local cat gets a new Christmas jumper, a perfectly decorated Christmas tree pops up from the ground and a man is turned into a snowman.

With help from her older brother the siblings turn a once dull village into a winter wonderland.

Asda’s chief customer officer Andy Murray explains: “We truly believe that with great quality products at leading price points; everybody can have an extra special Christmas with Asda.
