McDonald's Christmas advert 2018 – viewers love it and praise ad for being 'very festive'

The advert sees Santa and his reindeer delivering presents on Christmas Eve to slumbering children.

But while Father Christmas enjoys tucking into the mince pies left out for him by families, Rudolph and his pals are saddened to find no carrots put out for them.

As each house flys by, the reindeer are left feeling more and more dejected at their lack of treats.

But when Santa spies a McDonald's down on the street below, he hatches a plan and sneakily stocks up on bags of carrots from the fast-food retailer.

The reindeer are then delighted to see the crunchy treats hidden in Father Christmas' present sack.

McDonald's captions the advert with the slogan "Are you #ReindeerReady?".

The fast-food retailer is more known for its burgers and fries than its vegetables but it's trying to revamp its unhealthy image and carrots are just one of its healthy products.

You can order them as a side or swap them into a children's Happy Meal instead of fries.

And it seems viewers are loving the festive ad with some saying it's their favourite Christmas ad so far this year.

One Twitter user wrote: "You win hands down for the Christmas 2018 advert! Very festive and I love it!"

Another commented: "Never thought I would say this but @McDonalds has the best Christmas advert this year bravo."

Someone else tweeted: "Awww the McDonald’s Christmas advert is one of the best ones I’ve ever seen! Best once since the old Toys R Us Christmas advert! #ReindeerReady"

And one said: "Who needs @jlandpartners Christmas advert when we have got @AldiUK #KevinCarrot and @McDonalds Christmas ad?!"
