Christmas Meal Concert Season

A wardrobe malfunction turns into a triumph of kindness in this Christmas advert, and it’s a cracker of a reminder that we can all do our part to help others shine whether we’re helping out with an upcoming festive concert, or simply seeing the opportunity to lend a hand to someone who needs it:


South Africa (16 November 2023) — The Good Things Guy team are loving this year’s Christmas advert roll-out, and we’re shamelessly slipping more and more into festive mode with each passing day. While a recent ad might have made some feel peckish, it reminded us that festive concert season is also upon us, standing sweetly as one of the most special parts of the festive run.

Woolworths UK’s Christmas advert tells the creative story of little ones adorning a feast of costumes as they gear up for their festive concert.

That is, all except one unfortunate apple, who en route to the show, leaves her costume behind at the bus stop.

As anyone who has ever been a part of a school concert of any kind knows, losing a costume or actually breaking a leg is the stuff of stressful, sleepless nights (mostly for parents and teachers).

However, Little Apple’s friends soon come to the rescue and create a new costume for her, helping her transform into the most exciting star of the show—the Christmas cracker!

The message left behind is a cracker of a reminder to be kind, lend a hand and do your part in helping others shine this festive season in the concert that is our own lives.

We also have no doubt that there are going to be tons of wonderful performances from the little South Africans across the country as they wrap up the school year, and we want to cheer for as many of them as possible.

So, if your little ones have an upcoming end-of-year concert, we’d love to feel part of the audience and invite you to tag Good Things Guy in those festive concert videos to put the cheer in festive cheer.
