Not even late November
Two shops have lost my business this week. Goods in hand on the way to the till when suddenly I realised they were playing Christmas music in the firsts ****ing week in November!!! Put the stuff back on the shelf and walked out.
For the record, Christmas is awesome but all this nonsense is just engineered to squeeze as much money out of folk as possible and to put pressure on them. Capitalism at its very worst.Posted 2 years agoKryton57Subscriber

What a load of drivel.

speaking as someone who works in marketing though, i probably should look, because what a perfect example of everything held holy in marketing.
an advert that people like so much they post it on message boards and tell other people to watch.
delicious, wonderful, contentPosted 2 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber

I leave all my christmas preparation pretty much to christmas eve – but thats because – a) I have quite a small extended family, no children and very few people to plan and cater for. and b) I’m reasonably well off.
Shops would argue that they put christmas stock out as early as a lot of people start shopping that early. Christmas will be the biggest thing they do all year and if you’re on modest means and have a lot people to cater for then buying a little bit at a time, over time, is the way people prefer to achieve that.Posted 2 years ago
I think it’s clever, a pseudo-satirical look at what Gary Glitter’s life would be like in 20 years. Is he on the moon because he was exiled there, or did he go willingly and he has a sex slave in that shack? Still trying to make contact with small children without their parents knowing. I know we see the girl make first contact, but there must have been something before, otherwise how did he know who sent the telescope and where to look? Eh?Posted 2 years ago
All seems a bit, well, unnecessary. And really is that the best humour people can extract from it old man = paedo?
Not at all – it’s the weird way there’s no explanation why he’s on the moon, no explanation why it’s only a small girl who makes contact. Plot-wise it makes no sense. The paedo thing is a jokey way of making a plot that makes sense.Posted 2 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Business is so competitive now retailers who wait till December are dead. Black Friday copied from the US Thanksgiving sales has meant your full price sales have to be done prior, ie in early November as the bargain hunters wait till Black Friday which is now a major focus for the Christmas market, miss hitting your sales targets by then you are dead.Posted 2 years ago
