After last years brilliant campaign and wonderful song by Slow Moving Millie I am really looking forward to this years effort even though it's only October.

I have heard on the grapevine that the song being used this year is Frankie Goes to Hollywoods 'The Power of Love' but re done by the utterly brilliant Imogen Heap.

Should be well worth waiting for.

I'd have to disagree grin

As a City fan I have wonderful taste . Imogen Hope is a genius as are Puressence and the JL ads are better than most of the shit programmes.... apart from MOTD where we win the title....... AGAIN grin

I didn't realise Baby Pasta was a Thing. My DCs (entering puberty) still have it regularly because it cooks quicker and I'm running late, special little alphabet letters from the local Portuguese deli, which we used to use for literacy games.Do I win MNiest MNer of the day? Or will bonny take out a hit on me?

Is the CocaCola advertisement the one with the girl ice-skating and you see her grow up and have her own family? I think it's lovely.

I like the current JL one, so I hope the Christmas one is as good (although I think 6th October is a little bit too early to mention it. We have Hallowe'en, All Saints' Day, Bonfire Night, St. Andrew's Day, my birthday etc. etc. to get through first!).

I expected more from a City fan balotelli wink

Imogen Heap is a genius not a 'Whiney Female' Its also a classic christmas song if thats the one thats being done.

It's only fucking October shock

But don't you want to live like common people, Bonny?

I loved the JL advert... I am not particularly gooey or sentimental, but it had me bawling, and if I talk about it to other people, I get feckin' teary!

Damn you JL!

BonnyDay Sat 06-Oct-12 17:49:16

i know of their existence, like you might know of DFS sofas

YouMayLogOut Sat 06-Oct-12 17:44:23

How do you know if you don't watch them Bonny? grin

BonnyDay Sat 06-Oct-12 17:41:41

I dont watch adverts,they are for common people.

Numberlock Sat 06-Oct-12 17:40:37

Now if Morrissey had agreed to let JL use Shoplifters of the World Unite, I'd have a shed load of respect for him...

'Never tear us apart' is the INXS song in the latest ad Frontpaw.

Frontpaw Sat 06-Oct-12 16:15:05

Which INXS song? Have I missed something (as usual). I like Paloma Faith, she's a poppet!

BonnyDay Sat 06-Oct-12 15:42:55

Lol Numberlock - or a fecking Radley bag and some stretch boots

BonnyDay Sat 06-Oct-12 15:42:28

christmas is fine. its the mass hysteria on here thats shit.
male or female

Numberlock Sat 06-Oct-12 15:08:55

That song was an anthem to unrequited love and he turned it into a middle class spending spree. Please please please let me get an iPhone and a nice Ted Baker bag.

Fuck off.

Sparklingbrook Sat 06-Oct-12 15:08:49

Isn't it Paloma Faith doing the INXS song? I quite like her, but all this song pinching shouldn't be allowed.

redlac Sat 06-Oct-12 15:07:18

Is it the whiney female murdering an inxs song that is the current JL advert?

GrimAndHumourless Sat 06-Oct-12 15:06:13

bound to be a whiney female, always is

redlac Sat 06-Oct-12 15:05:41

I agree numberlock - my love for Moz reduced a little when I heard that awful version

redlac Sat 06-Oct-12 15:04:56

As long as its not some whiney female singer murdering a Smiths song ill be happy

Numberlock Sat 06-Oct-12 15:01:45

I can't forgive Morrissey for giving JL permission to use that track. Shame on him.

And I'm starting a Bonny fan club.
