Katy Perry debuts new ‘Holiday’ song in H&M commercial

Katy Perry’s Christmas Commercial Is Really, Really Creepy.

The shirtless man on top of a convertible that is being dragged by a legion of festive women looks like he’s being sacrificed to the gods of happiness and merriness. The dancing of the expressionless gingerbread men and teddy bears kind-of gives the impression that they’re biding their time as the slaves of humanity until they can stage an assault and take over the world like adorable little Terminators.

It’s just downright bizarre, and the peppy repeating of the chorus of new holiday single “Every Day Is A Holiday” feels like Perry and H&M are trying to condition viewers into instinctively needing to hit up the nearest shopping mall. None of this is to say that Katy Perry’s song isn’t actually super catchy, and the ad probably will work to bring shoppers in for some holiday shopping, even if it’s just on the chance that visiting an H&M store will lift the curse and free their brains from the refrain of the song. All in all, Katy Perry’s Christmas commercial for H&M plays like there has been a brainstorming session of every single image associated with winter and Christmas that is then brought in entirety to the screen for a musical extravaganza with an explosion of grins and glitter.

H&M may be going for a “happy and merry” slogan this holiday season, but folks might be a lot more of both if this Katy Perry commercial is forgotten.
