Ad Sad

Is the future going to be watching a commercial before you watch a commercial? Depending on what the pre-roll you get here is, probably, yeah. Anyway, "Get ready to sob… it's the John Lewis Christmas advert: Tear-jerking commercial tells story of hare making sure his bear best friend doesn't miss out on the big day," is pretty much the story. I mean, whatever, I have enough that makes me cry already, weepy touts for English department stores don't make the list but, you know, bears and Britain, plus it's Friday? It would be insane if we didn't post this. That's Lily Allen singing in there, by the way.

Christ. The original song is also by Keane, treacly British band. I think there might not be anything more (technically) British than this ad.

@liz It's not raining and the animals don't have a punch up at the end.

The subtext of this ad is that you can rescue the clinically depressed loved one/friend/family member in your life who sleeps a lot by spending a lot of money on Christmas this year.

Yeah but that bear will probably starve to death now.
