'Tis the season for blockbuster holiday commercials and down-under it’s done a little differently. We all love to celebrate Christmas but in Oz scrap the snow and cold weather and swap it for sunshine and scorchers. Here’s a few of the best festive Aussie TV commercials to mark the holidays whatever the weather…

Aldi

 

In this 90-second ad, Aldi tells the story of one man’s obsession with winning the traditional Aussie backyard xmas cricket, spanning across 40 years.

Lego

 

The charming spot sees Santa flung far away from his home but rescued by an unexpected friend and a little creativity. 

Woolworths

 

Woolworths is encouraging Australians to ‘Share the Spirit of Christmas’ and features a number of families enjoying the holiday season.

Bonds

 

Bonds, the underwear manufacturer, is "letting their light shine" this Christmas with its festive ad. Exploding with colour and sound, the projection lights aim to bring its red-hot new Christmas range to life. 

David Jones

 

David Jones has taken a leaf out of UK counterpart John Lewis’ festive playbook with a beautifully crafted, nostalgic and emotional take on Christmas.
