Sainsbury's OFFICIAL Christmas advert 2016 -The Greatest Gift

Presenting the new Sainsbury’s Christmas Advert – a joyous Christmas musical created in stop frame animation featuring vocals by James Corden. It tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and devoted Dad, who realises that the greatest gift he can give people this Christmas is his time. As the first snow falls, we find our hero Dave caught up in the Christmas whirlwind – all he wants to do is to get home to spend time with his family, but all sorts of Christmas duties and calamities are getting in his way. That is until he sees a gingerbread man on his daughter’s bedside table that they’ve made to look like him. That gives him a genius brainwave… Gather your family around to enjoy this very special Christmas story. #ChristmasIsForSharing This year, we’ve worked in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital to help families be together. Over 50% of children treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital are from outside of London, so we’re raising money to fund accommodation that means patients’ families can stay close by in difficult times.

#everybitofChristmas | Sainsbury's Ad | Christmas 2017

The 2017 Sainsbury's Christmas advert squeezes every bit of Christmas into a wonderfully fun and festive song, sung by people all over Britain. Christmas is the time of the year with the most ‘Living Well’ moments, so instead of celebrating just one bit, we are celebrating every bit - with a song that captures what the season really means to every one of us. The silly bits, the annoying bits, the tasty bits, the snoozy bits, the exciting bits, the cheesy and embarrassing bits. From munching on a cheeky chocolate gold coin at breakfast, to watching another festive movie with Kermit the Frog, to being gifted another novelty sock, to spending time with the extended family you only see once a year... #everybitofChristmas is living well. And you? Can you sing-along to every bit of Christmas?
