We have officially begun the second half of our 12 Ads of Christmas blog series!

In our previous posts, we’ve highlighted ads for cars, credit cards, mattresses, dating sites, sneakers, and razors.

To this point, MediaRadar’s rendition of the classic jingle looks something like this:


MediaRadar’s 12 Ads of Christmas: 7 Hairs a-Trimming

We’ve reached the halfway point of our 12 Ads of Christmas series!

In the beginning of this journey, we looked ourselves in the mirror with the simple goal of creating smooth, clean content for the rest of the world to see.

We’ve brought you 12 Engines Humming, 11 Cards a-Swiping, 10 Sleepers Sleeping, 9 Sites Romancing, and 8 Shoes a-Sneaking.

To round out the first half of our series, we’re sending you this year’s smoothest shaving advertisements.

The original jingle speaks not of hairy humans, but of feathered waterfowl...

Today, however, rise and shine, because we’re bringing you this year’s best in sleep-related ads!

Let us once again recap the original version of the "12 Days of Christmas":


MediaRadar’s 12 Ads of Christmas: 11 Cards a-Swiping

This is the second in our series of posts highlighting the 12 Ads of Christmas - our very own rendition of the "12 Days of Christmas."

In case you missed our opener, we sent our true love 12 Engines Humming - this year's best holiday car ads.

As Christmas inches ever closer, however, we move onward. Here, we'll take a look at 11 banks and credit cards that turn wish lists into dreams come true.

But first, let's refresh ourselves on the original jingle...

“On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me,
Twelve Drummers Drumming,
Eleven Pipers Piping,
Ten Lords a-Leaping,
Nine Ladies Dancing,
Eight Maids a-Milking,
Seven Swans a-Swimming,
Six Geese a-Laying,
Five Gold Rings,
Four Calling Birds,
Three French Hens,
Two Turtle Doves,
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!”

MediaRadar's rendition, however, has 11 Cards a-Swiping.

Why do people get the warm fuzzy feeling around the holidays? It’s the anticipation.

The anticipation of giving and receiving, making wishes come true and, most importantly, an escape from the norm.

In similar fashion to Santa for kids, credit cards are a means of fantastic adventure and exciting purchases for adults (MediaRadar is a proponent of sensible fiscal spending).

The campaigns for credit card companies play on this sentiment in their ads, and the timing couldn’t be better.

We all spend time thinking of what to get others, but there’s a little part of us thinking about number one, and why not? It’s been a long year, treat yourself.


Here are some examples from companies hoping you’ll open up a new line of credit to do so:
