#SomewhereInMyHeart – A Christmas Advert

It's that time of year when all the Christmas adverts start appearing on our TV. Usually, I look forward to the John Lewis advert but it was quite disappointing. Some might say I was unfair in my review of it but I'm not a Scrooge or trying to be controversial - I just didn't care for it. What have I done instead? I've put Christmas, charity, heart strings and music all into one big pot, mixed them up and created my own Christmas advert! I don't ever claim to be an expert at this type of thing but I do enjoy it. So, here it is my Christmas advert - #SomewhereInMyHeart... <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><span class="embed-youtube" style="text-align:center; display: block;"><iframe class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='1000' height='593' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/gHYIPQv0I_k?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'></iframe></span></div>

I don’t ever claim to be an expert at this type of thing but I do enjoy it. So, here it is my Christmas advert – #SomewhereInMyHeart…

What do you think?

All I did was take existing material and mixed it up a little. I’d like to thank The Gatsby Club, Roddy Frame and Siobhan Wilson – I hope they don’t mind too much…

You can watch all other retailer’s Christmas adverts in this article.

John Lewis say don’t forget about the elderly at Christmas…


TK Maxx say don’t forget your neighbours…


Steve Says don’t forget about the homeless! So, this year buy one extra gift by donating to Shelter’s Homeless At Christmas Appeal and give that homeless man a hug!

  1. First time I’ve seen the John Lewis advert. It does pull at the heart-strings a little and if I’m perfectly honest it does say a lot and makes you think about those that may be on their own this Christmas. Your advert was excellent. You should seriously look at doing something like this full-time. I think you were made for it.

    I did a Christmas Tree Topper challenge on my blog last year and raised £250 for Alzheimer’s research. It was great fun to do and a lot of people participated. I’ll be doing something similar this year.

    1. Thanks Hugh. I’d love to do that as a full time job but if I can do it as a hobby and get nice feedback then that’s good enough for now. Will be looking out for your challenge this year too 🙂

      1. If you enjoy it as a hobby then just think what going to work would be like if you did it there as well. Seriously, you’ve got a very good talent for this type of stuff. I just wished I lived nearby so you could give me some lessons in putting videos like yours together. They are always really good, Steve.

      2. Thank you! It’s not really that difficult theses days to be honest, there’s so much good software. Also, I kinda do get to indulge in this type of thing at work as you may have seen from my video on my about page and all the little hint and tip videos I get to make. So all good 🙂

  2. I’m wiping my eyes here, ya bugger! I hadn’t seen the John Lewis ad till now. I like yours and the John Lewis one. Normally I hate anything that deliberately or obviously plays on my heartstrings. (hated ‘The Champ’) but both yours and the JL ad are a great reminder without being OTT. Well done on putting this out there, Steve.

      1. Nothing wrong with a tear or two, I like a good blubber from time to time. I’ll give it a reblog then if that’s OK? I probably won’t be posting today – I’m only taking a breather from Nano just now for a few minutes.
