Ah, Christmas is somewhat upon us, and you know what that means: yes, the new John Lewis ad:
Old favourite sung by an up-to-date young lady? Check.
Heartwarming story involving a gift? Check.
Dougal Wislon? Check.
Cute kiddie? Check.
Very good ad? Check.
I preferred last year’s, but that’s like saying I preferred something very good to something also very good; A Mr. Kipling bakewell tart to an interesting copy of Private Eye, perhaps.
But never mind what I think, what do you think? Thinking is so important.
