The Fox and the Mouse has a strong likeness to Very's 'Wolf'-'Get More out of Christmas' advert.

If you follow the link below, you will get a bit more information about the christmas ads, including the music, and of course, they include the link to YouTube.

I saw on the news this morning that Greggs have offended people by replacing Jesus with a sausage roll in a nativity scene. Hilarious laffin

Im neither that easily offended or religious and their action doesnt personally bother me, but even I can see that that was always going to be really provocative to devout practising Christians. If theyd used their brains their marketing dept could have come up with something better Im sure , that didnt alienate a % of people .

No problem if it was a beef or kosher sausage roll.. . I wouldn't be offended but more annoyed that it was deliberately done to cause offence or at least "bad" publicity.(which is still publicity")
You could probably get arrested by putting slices of bacon on a mosque door handle..so it does seem double standards

People are messed up if they deliberately want to offend someone else. Its drawing the line between a bit of harmless banter and deliberate offence.think greggs using public media got it wrong on a pr level but won on overall publicity level.
