Here we have the McDonald’s Christmas 2022 advert titled ‘The List’. The ad featuring a cover version song of a famous song by Yazoo, follows a young boy who makes a Christmas list.
The advert begins with the boy’s mother suggesting he makes a Christmas list. The boy puts in a lot of effort and makes a long chain consisting of A4 pieces of paper each listing one present. While outside in at a Christmas market the boy loses his list in a gust of wind.
Upset, the parents decide to take the boy to McDonald’s to make him feel better. Afterwards the Mum asks “What was on your list anyway?” and the boy shows her the half of piece of paper that he managed to hold on to. It has a festive drawing of the family together in front of their house.
