Given that I shared something with you earlier that made me cry, the very least I can do is share something that made me spray my keyboard with tea and laughter 🙂
This article by the legendary Daily Mash is in response to the latest John Lewis TV commercial for Christmas (attached above), wholly designed to tug at the heartstrings, dig around in your handbag/pockets and empty your wallets.
Very funny if you’re a cynical old bag like me! 😉
The article reads as follows:
CORPORATE MARKETING TOOL TO WARM MORON’S HEARTS
IMBECILES around the UK are preparing to be enchanted by an advert for a big shop.
John Lewis’s seasonal emotion-manipulator debuts on TV this Saturday. It is ostensibly about friendship despite its actual message of ‘purchase objects’.
Fucking idiot Tom Booker, who watched the ad on YouTube, said: “A hare and a bear are friends. I am a grown man but I like that concept because I am intensely stupid.
“I love these epic Christmas ads because my feeble mind can’t work out when to have an emotion.
“It’s a nice, warm thing to have my feelings expertly puppeteered by a large company.”
Moron Emma Bradford said: “Is the John Lewis ad a well-crafted but ultimately cynical festive tale that exists only to generate more profit?
“If so, I’m in. Cartoon animals and shopping are my top things in the world.
“Anyone who doesn’t like those things is just mean.”
Naturalist Roy Hobbs said: “In real life, if a bear got close enough to a hare it would bite it in half then yank out its steaming giblets.
“Merry Christmas everyone!”
