ARGOS has revealed its Christmas advert for 2022 and it’s bound to be something we can all relate to.
This year’s advert marks the return of the Christmas we all know and love.
Celebrating the welcomed return of fun-loving, chaotic Christmas get-togethers, Argosâ ad will air for the first time at 5:30pm across ITV and Sky channels today.
The advert opens on a home decked out with Christmas decorations, where a couple is quietly preparing for the big day.
The man says âso how many are comingâ, to which his wife responds, âhmm just a fewâ, completely oblivious to the number of people about to descend on their home.
The scene cuts to a crowd of excitable neighbours wearing their festive glad rags and holding presents and champagne flutes chanting âpartyâ.
Viewers then see a group of enthusiastic bakers wearing colourful aprons, running with trifles in hand, before children join the crowd too.
Back in the house, the wine glasses, Christmas tree and bowl of crisps all start to shake as the soundtrack builds in volume, revealing an orchestral version of Opusâ Live is Life.
As the huge crowd approaches the couple look at each other wide-eyed in panic.
The clip cuts to two people frantically running with their babies, then to a pair laughing in hysterics at the joke from their Christmas cracker.
The scene zooms out to a shot of the crowd charging down the street, including football fans, family and friends with their suitcases and pillows.
In the house, the couple take deep breaths and the wife says âitâs going to be okayâ just as the champagne from the crowd is popped.
The crowd is finally joined by spirited children firing nerf guns, cutting to an aerial shot of the cul-de-sac filled with people.
A message appears on screen: âTheyâre coming. Be ready.”
The couple look at the nibbles and the husband takes out the Argos app.
A Habitat Dipped Speckle Stoneware Serve Bowl comes onto his screen, he says âweâre going to need a bigger bowlâ.
The doorbell then rings, and the Argos logo appears.
Rob Quartermain, head of marketing campaigns, at Argos said: âWe know how difficult the last few years have been for everyone, so we really wanted to bring a smile to viewers faces by highlighting the fun and comedic moments of Christmas get-togethers, along with the unique experience of being able to bring everyone, from all ages and backgrounds, to share a wonderful Christmas together at home.
“This yearâs advert really aims to celebrate that moment, and how Argos has everything you need to make this Christmas truly special.â
Back in 2020 Argos’ annual advert featured a song by Gary Barlow.
Last year’s Argos ad showed families celebrating bigger and better after the disappointment of Christmas during the pandemic.
It comes as most of the major supermarkets released their Christmas ads this week.
