Carphone Warehouse 2016 Christmas Advert "Elf Proper Christmassy"

This Christmas, Carphone Warehouse, the UK’s Biggest Mobile Retailer, is letting the nation know that literally everyone can come through its doors and find ‘the bestest possible deal’.

Rather than creating some lofty, emotional Christmas ad like almost every other brand, Carphone Warehouse has decided to create the ‘Keith Lemon’ of Christmas spots — something a little chaotic but “proper Christmassy”.

For this year’s ad, created by Brothers and Sisters, Keith has acquired an elf helper and presents his Christmas tidings from a slightly less glamorous location than he’s been used to of late, but nevertheless a very Christmassy set.

Keith attempts to maintain his professionalism despite a few technical hitches, and with the help of his Christmas elf, tells the nation about Carphone’s Christmas offers.
