Following revelations on B&T yesterday that some of the Christmas ads for UK retailers had caused a furore that included claims of racism and Paddington Bear being told to “f@ck himself” comes some sweeter spots from grocery chains Waitrose and Sainsbury’s.
Sainsbury’s has unveiled its first Christmas work courtesy of Wieden & Kennedy London who won the account last year from Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO who had held it for 35 years.

The ad’s the work of adam&eveDDB and was unveiled during the UK’s X Factor on Sunday night. Check out the rather chilly spot below:
