Following a similar format as last year’s campaign, this Visa Christmas advert shows real shopkeepers, hairdressers, a cafe owner, butchers, a bookseller, an antique dealer, a delivery driver, and customers all singing a classic Queen song.
The video features the tagline “Show your High Street some love” and tells us “Where You Shop Matters”, as the company encourages viewers to do more of their Christmas shopping locally, presumably paying using a Visa debit or credit card.
Advert Music: Somebody To Love.
Original Singers: Queen.

This year’s Visa Christmas commercial song that the adverts cast are singing is the Queen classic ‘Somebody To Love’ that recently featured in an ad for Amazon Music and Alexa control. The song’s lyrics were written by Freddie Mercury, with the single making it to number 2 on the UK charts after being released in 1976 from the album ‘A Day at the Races’.
