Every week, Unruly searches far and wide for the branded content making the biggest impression across the social web. This week, there’s only one topic of discussion: Christmas!
With more and more brands unveiling the highly-anticipated festive campaigns, the race is heating up for the season’s big winner. Could it be Sainsbury’s with a family-friendly musical? Or M&S with its action-packed look into the inner workings of the Claus family.
John Lewis’ latest Christmas ad “#BusterTheBoxer” has become the retailer’s most shared ad of all time, racking up 1.81 million shares in less than a week.
It has beaten off stiff competition from 2014’s adorable “Monty The Penguin”, and last year’s surprisingly sad “Man on the Moon” – which has 1.67 million shares.

This week saw the launch of one of the most hotly-anticipated videos of the year – the John Lewis Xmas ad. We’re sure you’ve seen Buster The Boxer by now, so we’ve also included some of the best ads you might have missed.
John Lewis: Buster the Dog
As reliable as Santa Claus, Brussel’s sprouts, or an argument over Christmas dinner, John Lewis is back for this year’s festive ad.
After years of delighting viewers with lush, beautifully-wrought campaigns, the British retailer has learned how to build anticipation for its season showcase. Speculation began early this year as to what John Lewis were keeping up their sleeve.
Christmas time is when brands are told to unleash their imaginations, and budgets, on the biggest, brightest and most bawl-worthy ads they can make.
With the festive ad race already heating up with the launch of John Lewis’s ad today, we thought we would provide an overview of some of the best Christmas campaigns released so far.
The hottest ad in Adland has landed and is sharing fast. For many the John Lewis spot is the official start of Christmas season, and the huge online response to the brand’s latest effort proves that people are ready to start singing carols and decking halls.
Starring #BusterTheBoxer and a Randy Crawford soundtrack, there’s no doubt this ad is set to top the advertising (and music) charts this year.
As temperatures dip and the state of global politics continues to keep blood pressures soaring, the advertising industry seems determined to provide some light relief.
In these gloomy times, October’s crop of high-sharing adverts is a sort of antidote: charming, brightly-coloured, and imbued with the blind optimism of a labrador puppy.
It’s almost here. Election day in the U.S. of A. After more than a year-and-a-half of one of the most controversial and divided campaigns the US has seen in decades, Americans from coast to coast will be casting their ballot tomorrow.
While the world awaits the final results, here at Unruly we’ve been busy dissecting how the candidates have been connecting with their audiences online. We tracked the most shared videos from the candidates to see which videos and trends are rising to the top of the polls.
