Editor's Pick

In a charming, fun holiday ad by Swiss retailer Manor, Santa has real trouble deciphering a kid's illustration of what they want for Christmas.

Delightfully animated by AgainstAllOdds the spot, by BETC Paris, it starts with the little boy presenting his parents with a drawing. They have no idea what it is, but he sends it off to the North Pole anyway.

At Santa's workshop, Santa and his elves try to work out what is required, but to no avail: neither the oldest, wisest elf or the tech-savvy Santa Junior in his digital den (in a scene straight from the "CSI" storybook) have a clue. It's Mrs. Santa who has the bright idea of sending him off to Manor to find the gift. Watch out for the ending, which keeps you guessing.
