Father Christmas and Matthew Walker Pudding

Matthew Walker, the British Christmas Pudding manufacturer, are promoting their longstanding business record through a tongue in cheek television commercial featuring Father Christmas.

Matthew Walker and Father Christmas

Father Christmas and Matthew Walker, too old timers, appear in the kitchen together, talking about their longstanding friendship, started in 1899 when Christmas got stuck in Walker’s chimney while delivering a bag of Turkish currants. The TV advert provides several double entendres that suggest that there could be a sexual angle to the relationship. Or maybe it doesn’t. Keep an eye out for the elves walking past the window.
