This Vodafone Christmas 2018 advert video titled “Glide Through Christmas” features English actor and comedian Martin Freeman. He panics as his Aunty Sue arrives unannounced at a family gathering and he realises he hasn’t got her a Christmas present. Luckily, thanks to Vodafone’s 4G network, a present is ordered and awkwardness is averted. Martin then goes to a nearby ice rink to express his joy in the form of some unbelievable ice skating moves.
