The Independent reports:
Tesco is the latest supermarket to release its 2021 Christmas advert – and because of the inclusion of a double-jabbed Santa showing off his Covid vaccine pass, it’s definitely wound up anti-vaxxers.
The ad called: “This Christmas, Nothing’s Stopping Us,” shows Brits making the most of this festive season after lockdown restrictions last year meant that loved ones could not come together to celebrate and spend time with each other.
However, the ad then shows a potential hiccup and people panic as a TV news headline reveals that Santa may have to quarantine to travel internationally (not ideal when you’re meant to be delivering presents to kids all over the world).
Read the full article. Watch the ad.
Did I really just see a Christmas TV ad on ITV for Tesco to Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop me Now’ hit with families having fun / flying abroad etc & then a guy smiling flashing up his smart phone with a COVID passport on it?? Omg 😳 😱 I am NEVER shopping at Tesco again #boycottTesco ✊🙅♀️
