Move over John Lewis! Costa Malta’s magical Christmas ad is giving us all the feels
Every year, we all wait with bated breath for stores like John Lewis’ legendary Christmas ads, and this year, Malta’s got its own tear-jerker, thanks to Costa Coffee!
The heart-warming ad released on their Facebook page is literally bursting with the magic of Christmas!
Set in the cosy Marsaxlokk branch of Costa Coffee, the ad follows the story of a hard-working Costa barista who must make a last-minute dash after closing on Christmas Eve to buy a cuddly gift for his daughter. When a mysterious man arrives to enjoy a hot drink and snack just before closing time, the barista loses hope, but this magical customer is not all that he first appears…
Watch it here:
Featuring well-known local actors Thomas Camilleri and Barry Calvert, the beautifully-shot festive advert was developed and filmed by media production house Three Wise Men, based on a concept by Yanis Azzopardi, Costa Coffee Malta’s Marketing Manager and Reach Marketing.
Beyond the uplifting festive ad, Costa has also recently launched its highly-anticipated seasonal menu, to boost the warm, magical feeling of Christmas even further. With seven new comfortingly Christmas-inspired drinks, including gingerbread latte, hazelnut praline latte, doughnut latte, white hot chocolate, caramel cookie hot chocolate, indulgent hot chocolate and indulgent hot caramel, it’s not hard to see why Santa would choose Costa for his coffee break on a chilly Christmas Eve!
