November is here which mean it is time to prepare yourself for an influx of festive adverts. Supermarket Christmas ads never fail to turn us into blubbering messes. The power they have over us is shocking and this year is no different.

Asda’s Christmas advert has just landed and we’re struggling to stop the tears from falling. The magical advert reminds us that our siblings are always there to bring joy into our lives, especially during the holidays.

The touching advert follows siblings Tilly and Jack who are trying to capture the magic of Christmas with the help of their late grandfather.

At the beginning of the ad, Tilly sees the Northern Lights which her grandfather once referred to as ‘Santa’s left over magic’.

The little girl creates a contraption using her grandfather’s old walking stick and a glass jar and manages to collect the leftover magic.

The brother and sister watch their hometown transform into a Christmas wonderland as the magic turns homes into gingerbread houses and people into snowmen.

However, little Tilly is heartbroken when the magic runs out, but her big brother comes to the rescue by bringing the magic of Christmas into their home.

You can watch the full video here but make sure you’ve got the tissues at the ready:


If anyone has a serious case of The Fear this morning, it's one particular branch of Domino's Pizza after an employee was snapped in a compromising position in a well-known highstreet supermarket.

So, it all kicked off when the guy, who was wearing a Dominos uniform, was photographed stocking up on potato wedges in a branch of Aldi in the UK.

Taking to social media to call the pizza giant out on the apparent indiscretion, SineadSarah shared the snap before writing: "Thank you @dominos – next time I spend 3.99 on tiny portion of potato wedges, I'll remember there from Asda." (sic)

Twitter users, unsurprisingly, wasted no time getting in on the drama as the tweet racked up more than 17,000 likes in less than 24 hours.

"Free Pizza for life coming her way so she doesn't reveal any more of your secrets!" wrote one (exceptionally gleeful) social media user.

"I feel so betrayed," added another.

Weighing in on the controversy, a spokesperson for the international franchise acknowledged the public's outrage, and hastened to offer an explanation for the move.

"With a big sporting weekend, very occasionally our stores are in an unfortunate position where some products may run out," she said.

"We do not advocate this as a solution and are investigating. We have rigorous food standards where our franchisees buy all food from our approved suppliers to help maintain the high standards customers rightly expect.”

Right, so…
