UK Christmas Adverts

 

Postby menime123 » Sun Nov 15, 2015 9:18 pm

Why has the thread title been updated in favour of Sainsbury's? I mean it's great, but bloody long, with a tiny bit of Christmas shoved onto the end.

Because Sainsbury's have just launched theirs?

It was John Lewis before.

Since when can we hijack threads?

If I start talking about Madonna in the Mariah Carey thread can we change that title too? :roll:

Let's at least make it fair and just call it UK Christmas Adverts.

I'm a little underwhelmed by the trampoline one. The Kevin the Carrot one's quite good though.

I think it's one of the best actually, I love the twist at the end, it's a nice fun advert, less depressing!

The drama in this thread last year. :lol:

I think the John Lewis one is cute, and much better than last year's creepy one.

I thought Kevin The Carrot was a bit disturbing as he trampled over the corpses of his dead brothers and sisters lying under the turkey. :-?

Why was their a full Christmas spread out the night before?

Can't believe everyones slating it, it really made me happy watching it. The Aldi one is kinda funny, I think Aldi did a take on the John Lewis thing last year too?

Who wants a trampoline for Christmas? That's what I don't get. :roll:
Did John Lewis order to many trampolines and can't get shut of them? :lol:

I love the John Lewis advert. But I watch dogs doing daft stuff on YouTube all the time. Slightly interested to see what young kids make of it, considering it shows that the Dad is making and sorting the Christmas gift and not Santa :lol:

^Simple expaination on that. Santa delivered it and the dad has to put it together.
