It is the second time the singing boxes have featured in the Christmas adverts, following the success of last year’s offering. 

The campaign launched on Saturday 3 November and will run across nine countries including the US, UK, Germany and Mexico. Nine further spots will be rolled out.  

First out the post with its advert this year was Currys PC World, which debuted its campaign – titled The Magic of Christmas Upgraded – on Thursday 1st November during Emmerdale, featuring the carol Good King Wenceslas as the soundtrack.

Meanwhile Aldi was accused of copying Coca Cola with its Christmas advert. 

The spot sees the character of Kevin The Carrot return once again, this time driving a red truck covered in Christmas lights that looks strikingly similar to the instantly recognisable Coca-Cola truck.
