Argos launch alien Christmas advert with CHI & Partners

Argos has unveiled its Christmas advert with CHI & Partners, featuring a family of aliens baffled by the shopping habits of humans.

The advert, which features a father who likes eggnog and a mother who likes Beiber, shows the aliens visiting a shopping centre and question why the humans aren’t using Argos to order online and collect in store.

Bill Nighy plays the father alien, while Caroline Quentin plays the mother in the minute long advert.

Absolutely LOVED the bit where they sing along to "We're walking in the air." Love Bill Nighy's voice. Always sit up for him. Love the fact that the aliens are really quite naf. I mean, they don't look particularly high tech. There is something charming about them, particularly their doll-like eyes. But the sing along really clinched it for me.
