So, it’s that time of year again!
John Lewis have just released their Christmas advert for 2013…
Nice advert I thought, if not a little bit too contrived and additionally sad in places, but all-in-all, if I have to watch an advert then I’d rather watch adverts of this calibre – and for my favourite retailer.
Slightly disappointed that they’ve gone with a vocal from Lily Allen, rather than plucking someone from obscurity, but then it seems that they’ve gone to ridiculous lengths to be commercial this year and merchandise the heck out of this advert – as evidenced here.
I’m definitely getting older incidentally – it totally doesn’t feel like twelve months since Gabrielle Aplin’s Power of Love!
I have to say though, the 2011 commercial is still my absolute favourite!
