A hog is for life, not just for Christmas

Forget the festive schmaltz or product-heavy films – BETC Paris’ witty Christmas ad for Canal+ features an unruly boar to show why a TV subscription makes the perfect gift…

BETC has created some brilliant ads for Canal+ over the years from 2011’s Bear to this year’s Unicorns.

We won’t give too much away but the latest spot, titled Best Friends, highlights the importance of choosing your gifts carefully.

It’s also a cautionary tale for anyone who might be looking to purchase a pet on a whim in the lead up to the festive season – presenting a couple who might have been better off buying a subscription for Christmas instead…

You can see Eliza’s review of this year’s Christmas ads here.
