But that’s enough about me – let’s get back to these terribly uninspiring ads, which make Christmas sound about as magical as a day spent preparing your tax return. Bonus points for the hint of cosmic terror in the eyes of each of these celebrities as they force themselves to laugh at their own non-jokes.
