Couldn't give a flying shit about the John Lewis advert or any of the others?

Oh. The Monster is called Moz and everybody MUST RUSH to buy one? Bollox.

Or Kevin The Carrot. Another capitalistic set of bollocks.

Yes, not up to their usual standard, I can see the base concept is good but there is something about the implementation that doesn't gel and it doesn't really come to any sort of intelligible punchline or ending.

JL ad didn't do anything for me other than spotting the political correctness in it Black population 3% mixed marriage/relationship 10%, Trying to put a nice spin on monsters following Saville ,Harris etc. They also pinched a bit from toy story with the toys coming out from under the bed.
In the words of Peter Kay its not the monsters you need be frightened off its the burglars coming through the window......have it !

Aldi ad far better made.

I see the M and S one also has a mixed marriage/relationship.

The ad reputedly cost JL £7 million.

I'd be more inclined to visit their shop had they donated it to the homeless and replaced their ad with a statement explaining why homes got priority over schmaltz this year.

This one for Barbour (country clothing) is short, clever and gets the product ad across
