    Would been great if Brian May was the choreographer/teacher.

    Cool advert though

    Quite. A partnership, one that treats staff well, sources products ethically, farms well (they’re over the hill from me) and prices competitively (Never knowingly undersold, etc) or…

    Yet, for some, the lure of “cheaper” is more important than the people behind the products.

    Yep, it’s a good ad. I’m a partner and it’s certainly very personal for me.  I just hope to god it encourages more customers to spend money with us otherwise the recent job losses will be followed by lots and lots more.

    That has to be the least ethnically diverse school in Britain! Unless the Partnership can make itself relevant to anybody other than little Tarquin’s parents and their banker friends Amazon will be snapping at their heels.

    I love the partnership concept and we are big fans of both banners. The company has tremendous heritage and is a wonderful concept, but these saccharin sweet Middle England ads are beginning to get tired.

    And if times are tough, why spend so much on a needless rebrand? Do they seriously think that anybody will stop saying ‘Waitrose’ and start saying ‘Waitrose and Partners’ and the same for John Lewis?

    Am I just sounding like Mr Grumpy?

    Yes, much better to spend nothing on marketing and wait for the sales to come rolling in….

    I don’t know, some of them looked pretty unscrupulous.

    You could spend money on marketing the partnership concept and the link between the 2 companies (to the 3 people in the country who aren’t already aware) without going to the expense of a rebrand and still deliver the same message at a lower cost, or even reinforce the message more by spending more on the media and less on needlessly changing signage, stationery, carrier bags, name badges, websites etc etc etc.

    Love both brands, but think this ad is out of touch with the times and the diverse nature of the population that they need to be spending money in their stores. It is particularly unecessary given their profit hole. I am not usually sensitive to such things, but this is really blatant.

    Sanitised lyrics. Pulled trigger… not dead.

    Pretty cool though. Surprised not done as a Christmas ad.

    I spotted 4 BME, out of probably 30-40 kids, so bang on quota.

    Great ad.

    I thought that was ace – I suspect it WAS the Christmas ad but they’ve pulled it forward.

    I think the rebrand is good too – trying to remind people that this isn’t just a faceless corporation (unlike their main competitor).

    I cant believe the band have allowed one of the best songs ever to be abused just to sell us more stuff. They cant be that desperate for the royalty fee

    Sometimes it’s less the lure and more the only option.

    STW company excluded, obvs.

    Those that care already know

    Those that don’t care (or can’t afford to care) still won’t care

    This is the band, whose singer, the main personality of their music and image, died and they carried on with someone from a TV talent show. Yeah I can’t believe they would let their poncy song be abused either. LOL.

    Bloke who never speaks at my work, turned to me this morning and started telling me about this ad! Thing is, I hate Bohemian Rapsody, so I’ll never see it. Marvellous. 😆

    Yes and its just as bad. At least its shorter

    I should like everything about John Lewis – price matching, warranties, employee ownership -but the smugness and artificial sweetness  of the adverts really winds me up.

    I’d hate to see it go but it’s not that great, it just shows how crap our high streets are IMO.

    As per oldog, it’s dull middle-ageness in bricks and mortar. I’ve shopped for some hifi there recently and the product knowledge was abysmal – reading off the box etc.

    Never knowingly undersold

    B0llocks!

    There’s a Waitrose on my way home from work…. I like going there.

    Bought some Wi\Fi stuff from JL on Monday on a price match against Currys, picked it up yesterday, emailed them my order number and requested the difference refund at 10am, refund confirmation email arrived at 11:30.

    Good service.

    I’ll alwys buy from them if I can.

    Best after sales service I’ve ever had.

    5 year warranty for free?

    One of ny TV’s blew after 2 years. They replaced the panel and motherboard £260 worth of parts and plus an hour of labour.

    Now my main TV (4yr old) signal pickup is playing up.  Repair techy is coming next week.

    Why would buy elsewhere?

    You’d have thought they could have found children who could sing. I thought it was cringeworthy.

    If their fans can forgive them for breaking the United Nations cultural boycott to play Sun City in apartheid South Africa I’m sure they’ll get over a bit of advertising.

    No one should ever have to listen to children singing.
