Tesco is making the most of its position as the final major retailer to be launching its 2023 Christmas advert, giving customers a sneak peek at the campaign before it makes its debut this weekend.
The advert will air for the first time on ITV during the advert break of the first episode of this season’s ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’, starting at 9pm.
Rather than follow in the steps of Asda and John Lewis by releasing a teaser video, Tesco has released a set of stills taken from the ad, which show a range of Christmas-themed scenarios including a generous stack of mince pies and a cheerful Tesco delivery driver.
Titled ‘Become More Christmas’, the supermarket’s latest festive film will show how a trip to Tesco can get people feeling more Christmassy with every shop. The launch of the ad will mark the official start of the retailer’s Christmas campaign, helping encourage people to get into the festive spirit.
