Walmart’s New Holiday Ad – The Music, The Facial Expression Shopping, and More!

While kids are finishing off the last of their Halloween candy, Walmart has ushered in the Christmas season (no offense, Thanksgiving!) with a new commercial. Check out the festive ad here…

Backing the holiday video clips is Etta James with “I Got You Babe.” Below is the full track.

You probably already know this is a cover the hit by Sonny & Cher (released in 1965). Etta James version was released in the late 60s. One of my favorite bands from the 80s and 90s also did a cover. Here’s UB40’s version from 1985.


Walmart is also launching a facial recognition shopping experience (in partnership with Facebook), so if you like this ad, smile and Walmart will know it 😉


OK, that’s probably hopefully not true. Hopefully they aren’t accessing our computer cameras but with that silliness aside, do you like this Walmart ad? Does it get you into the Christmas spirit? Chime in below…

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the 2021 WalMart Christmas ad, especially because my funny high school friend Lisa Fredrickson is in it!!

  2. I think this is their best commercial! The song is stuck in my head. As soon as I think of the song I think of Walmart now 😂 Lol
