    Apparently I have no soul because I didn't cry at the advert.

    For fucks sake.

    I can be pathetically sentimental at times, that ad didn't come anywhere near tear production.

    Was it supposed to be a tear jerker though. More of a "Naahhhh how cute!" thing imo.

    I fucking hate crass commercialism even more when it masquerades as emotional chick crap.

    Fuck off and die, John Lewis (if that's even your real name).

    I'm looking forward to the remixes of the Penguin Sex Slave ad appearing on Youtube- the addition of the music from a John Carpenter film to the sog's head in a box ad a couple of years ago was brilliant.

    It was his real name. And all 90,000 of us here wish you the merriest of Christmases, PES_Fanboy (if that's even your real name).

    The only way I could hate it more than last years is if it featured a song by... No... Wait..... I don't hate anything more than Keane.

    It is not even fucking December and this bollocks is already starting.  I always hate Christmas by the time it arrives as it just drags on too fucking much.

    Frankly anyone who has an advert or displays up before December had started should be fucking shot.

    Just asked my missus (who is a TV addict), and she didn't know John Lewis Christmas adverts were a "thing" either.

    Now Woolworths on the other hand, their Christmas adverts were a thing

    Dude I love Christmas. I love the commercialism of it. I even quite like John Lewis, as a store.

    I just hate the faux emotional bullshit that JL peddle which exploits the worst in British sentimentalism.

    Plus I'm not in a band that plays deconstructed 80s songs with a 'breathey' girl singer, so I won't be getting JL royalty checks for Christmas.

    On further analysis... I reckon the kid actually wants a little sister. He's projecting his need for companionship on a fluffy toy. Purchasing a mate for the penguin will only further intensify this sense of loneliness; perhaps forcing him deeper into his delusions of friendship with an inanimate object.

    In conclusion, his parents have likely permanently stunted his social development by failing to recognise his turmoil (clearly evident in his throwing of food to the floor when he believes his mother is not watching).

    I understand why people have been crying at the advert now. Deeply depressing.
  • Deleted user 6 November 2014 14:38:36
    Oh I thought he missed his twin sister (cot death).

    Either way, bold move of JL to trivialise grief

    Next year we'll get a re-formed Anti-Nowhere League to cover Half Man Half Biscuit's "All I want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague away kit".

    It's all so obvious now. I clearly need to watch more adverts so as to gain a greater understanding of the deep meaning within.

    No probs. But it's a bit of hassle just stripping out the addresses, so do you mind if I leave all the bank details on there?

    We all know there's only one Christmas advert that counts anyway.
