Icelandic Christmas advert calls for support for Wales and England at World Cup

After a week of Noddy Holder’s live stream on Iceland’s website, where he looks extremely bored in an empty room, Iceland reveals its official Christmas and no Christmas commercial and it has a message clear to the nation; NOTYETNODDY .

The live stream showed Noddy Holder, Slade’s guitarist and voice of “Merry Christmas Everyone” and his signature line “It’s Christmaaaaas,” looking extremely bored in an empty room.

Footage showed him passing the time and trying to remain patient. He’s been seen twirling around in a chair, trying out dance moves and even reading a newspaper.

Iceland unveils full Christmas ad

Iceland takes a stand and asks customers to support England and Wales at the World Cup, before celebrating Christmas.

The eccentrically dressed Noddy Holder is shown in a festively lit room, preparing for the moment we’ve all counted on.

Noddy continues to sing looking quite shocked at himself, until the instantly recognizable voice of Brian Blessed interrupts him at ‘It’s Christmaaaa…’.

Brian Blessed, another national treasure, stops the Christmas announcement by interjecting with the voiceover ‘No, no, no! Not yet Noddy! Don’t you know football is on’. Instead, it reveals a huge range of party food deals that viewers can pick up now from the frozen supermarket.

Caspar Nelson, Marketing Director of Iceland Foods, said: “We have taken the unusual step of silencing the Christmas legend. With the World Cup kicking off on Sunday, we need the nation to pour their energy into supporting the England and Wales football teams.

Iceland has confirmed that Noddy Holder is safe and well, being taken care of at a safe place. To see how he passes the time visit www.iceland.co.uk/campaigns/not-yet-noddy

The advert will premiere on Saturday night television during ITV’s I’m a Celebrity in London, Scotland and the Midwest.
