I hope they edited it down. 4 mins isn't long, but this made its seem like half an hour.

I think I saw it last night on Channel Four as an advertising premiere, during Humans. It took the entire break.

Have you guys from overseas seen the Warburtons Giant Crumpet advert? Featuring the Muppets?

No we don't see that commercial overseas because we don't eat crumpets. I don't even know where you'd buy them.
It's time for the 2000-2009 Female-Led Singles Countdown!
and my Top 100 Artists countdown!
More? How about a survivor based on a countdown?

They're oh soo good.

According to Wikipedia, a similar North American product would be a griddle cake.

My dream artist for them to use would be BETSY doing a cover of Believe by Cher (Ella Henderson style).

I am not impressed. It’s not Christmas at all. Really dropped the ball imo.

I love this version of Only You. But only since Kylie recorded it for her Christmas album, I feel a little Christmassy when hearing this song.

I wish Kylie had just done a solo version. I don’t mind James at all, but it felt unneeded.

This year’s adverts are all largely awful, especially Sainsbury’s.

They play it in store once an hour very loudly, I severely detest it.

In the words of Denise Royle, Christmas is not really a time for kids, is it?
