The Greatest Gift | Sainsbury’s Ad | Christmas 2016


(Music) Another year over
Where do they go to? It’s a mystery
Now it’s December So much to remember
Before Christmas Eve I’m already late
and my train is delayed Disruptions on the line
I race into work and the place is berserk
Yes it’s Christmas time I want to find the greatest gift I can
give my family But right now I don’t have time to breathe The streets are chaotic, the shops idiotic
There’s a queue for the queue A granny’s taking her time at the front
of the line “Ninety one, ninety two” (Granny counting) There’s a party at work
And the manager’s twerkin’ Inappropriately
To top off the day Another train is delayed
It’s a catastrophe Christmas Time is here (revellers singing)
I’d like to spend the time with the ones I love so dear I’m tryin’ to find the greatest gift
I can give my family I don’t have time there’s only one of
me Tell me how do people do it all?
I’ll never get it done If only there were a way to be
In two places at once Wait! That gives me an idea! (Dave talking) If I wasn’t alone
What if I had a clone I could do so much more
It would all be a breeze With a couple more mes
I’d have time galore I want to find the greatest gift I can
give my family The greatest gift I can give is ME! Now I can meet with the boss
And empty out my inbox all simultaneously Leaving me time to spend
With my family and friends Where I want to be I want to find the greatest gift I can
give my family The greatest gift I can give is me! I want to find the greatest gift I can
give my family The greatest gift I can give is me! I want to find the greatest gift I can
give my family The greatest gift I can give
The greatest gift I can give …is me!

    Another year over

    Where do they go to?

    It's a mystery

    Now it's December

    So much to remember

    Before Christmas Eve

    I'm already late and my train is delayed

    Disruptions on the line I race into work

    and the place is berserk

    Yes it's Christmas time

    I want to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    But right now I don't have time to breathe

    The streets are chaotic, the shops idiotic

    There's a queue for the queue

    A granny's taking her time at the front of the line

    "Ninety one, ninety two"

    There's a party at work And the manager's twerkin' inappropriately

    To top off the day

    Another train is delayed

    It's a catastrophe

    Christmas Time is here

    I'd like to spend the time with the ones I love so dear

    I'm tryin' to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    I don't have time there's only one of me

    Tell me how do people do it all? I'll never get it done

    If only there were a way to be In two places at once

    Wait! That gives me an idea!

    If I wasn't alone

    What if I had a clone

    I could do so much more

    It would all be a breeze

    With a couple more me's

    I'd have time galore

    I want to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    The greatest gift I can give is ME!

    Now I can meet with the boss

    And empty out my inbox all simultaneously

    Leaving me time to spend

    With my family and friends

    Where I want to be

    I want to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    The greatest gift I can give is me!

    I want to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    The greatest gift I can give is me!

    I want to find the greatest gift I can give my family

    The greatest gift I can give

    The greatest gift I can give …is me!

  4. I'm sorry but i can't appreciate the promotion of the inbreeding of normal humans with "different" kind of people

  5. Now this is how you accomplish something light-hearted and a tad bit goofy, but executed well. The main character feels relatable, motivated to get the best Christmas he could give, and in the end it's himself. Even if this message has been done multiple times before, it's still pulled off with tact and grace and this man is simply a good person like a lot of us, and that's all we need. This doesn't feel like the 2017 commercial where the goofiness makes me groan as I feel nothing from it, but instead something to smile at, and this topped with great stop-motion animation that feels right at home with Aardman makes this a treat to watch. Well done, Sainsbury's, you've done it again.

    8/10
    Great

  6. When London Overground gets disrupted because of stupid little things.
    TFL: Overground, 85% of trains running on 85% of trains running on time.
    Commuters:0% of trains are running on time due to poor management and tube strikes.

    London Overground,the worst.

  7. Just got a 70 pounds parking fine through the post for parking at Sainsbury’s in torquey …. as a loyal customer I’m disgusted as I made sure I shopped in the store first . I WILL NOT BE SHOPPING IN SAINSBURYS ANY MORE !
