Toy Show Teaser


The trailer for this year’s Late Late Toy Show, debuting on RTÉ One tonight.

Gareth Naughton writes:

This year’s trailer goes for a traditional Christmas feel taking inspiration from the classic children’s story The Nutcracker. A young girl settles down to sleep as a festive snow globe twinkles at her bedside.

As she sleeps, the snow globe comes to life with toy soldier – and Late Late Toy Show host – Ryan Tubridy joined by the girl and her friends opening presents and playing in the snow. All to the tune of The Shins’ version of the festive classic Wonderful Christmastime.

The trailer was created by the RTÉ Marketing and Promotions team and features a 5-metre snow globe, miniature snow globes handmade by the production and a group of young actors – and real life friends – from the Empire Dance and Performing Arts Academy in Tallaght.

    Would it be begrudgery to say that this advert has a bit of a nightmarish quality? Unintentionally.
    (Or has the potential to be a nightmarish advert.)

      Then again, I thought the Billy Barry Kids were creepy when I was a child. And some people loved them, so it could be just me.
