So what is it about John Lewis Christmas adverts….
It’s not great art
Nope, it’s not art but it IS very well done
it’s to make you give money to people for shit that you probably don’t want to buy and that they probably don’t need.
I’d happily settle for gloves and a scarf every time, oh and socks. The trick is in not spending much money but finding the time to get something appropriate. Long term faves are a multitool I’ve had for 10 years now and a park triple allen key.

Bah Humbug Bollocks to the lot of you!
I like Christmas, I enjoy Christmas, I celebrate Christmas in a hearty and pagan way.
I don’t fall for all that advertising/marketing bullshit.
Crying at the poor ickle snowman going to the big shop to buy his snowlady some lovely gloves? Really?

First time I saw it tonight and googled the music seems to be just a cut down version of Power of Love and not a full song
She was on the Radio today, I was only half listening but sure it’s being released.

No, it’s not art, but it uses elements of art to elicit an emotional response. And actually, it does it very well. I didn’t actually tear up, but I was moved (after being determined not to be) and *that* is what artists aim for, in the main.
If I had a budget of six mill, I would pay someone to punch people in the balls at 20p a punch. But no-one would come to my shop 😥
EDIT: Oh and Mr Nutt – they’ve been using that music all year and the ad was bloody brilliant.Posted 5 years agonjee20Subscriber
Does everybody somehow forget the John Lewis exists in the 11 months since the previous Christmas?
Nah, they did their ‘never knowingly undersold’ ad a couple of months ago, with the parallel lives, that was good.
I can’t believe how strongly people (well Crikey) feel about this sort of thing, crazy!Posted 5 years ago
