Last years bear and hare left me cold, but this years penguin one had me sobbing. I may be hormonal.

I think they've nailed it.

Ooh, will investigate abd report back. Probably with spoiled massacre.

A spoiled massacre chaos? I for one can only be glad.

penguin sex trafficing ...excellent

TheWhispersOfTheGods Thu 06-Nov-14 09:41:56

Ghostly that was my first thought -"merry Christmas, I've bought you a mail order bride!"

Much better than last year's, they totally missed the mark there.

here it is

I think it's the best yet I just cried

My favourite up until now was the 2011 one but this beats it smile

RobinSparkles Thu 06-Nov-14 09:46:17

Aww, that's really sweet! smile

I am not sure about the use of real penguins?

NoisyOyster Thu 06-Nov-14 09:47:15

sniffle sniffle

NoisyOyster Thu 06-Nov-14 09:47:44

They're not real sick they're cgi penguins

Beeznectar Thu 06-Nov-14 09:47:53

My eyes are leaking hmm

Disclaimer; think I have cried at all the JL ads

I adore it. Last years was such a disappointment, left me cold too. This one is lovely and yes, I shed a tear too. I'm not even pregnant or on my period either wink.

Whippet81 Thu 06-Nov-14 09:49:17

I adored last years - not so much this one.

OwlWearingSunglasses Thu 06-Nov-14 09:50:11

I sobbed at last years, even when the song came on the radio I was blubbing.

This year's one is lovely but no tears. smile

IsabellaPong Thu 06-Nov-14 09:50:45

I don't get it sad

Captainbarnacles1101 Thu 06-Nov-14 09:52:17

Och lovely! She'd a tear also.

Dazedconfused Thu 06-Nov-14 09:52:43

I didn't like last year's at all (was worried about the cartoon bear being woken up at the wrong time of year (yes I over think things)).
I love penguins and may put my wee one in her penguin onesie today

Thebodynowchillingsothere Thu 06-Nov-14 09:53:23

Oh bollicks! Mascara run now. Yes love it but have loved them all.

The funniest Christmas ad though was the old boots one wigh the 2 women who had heavy colds.

Sexist but hilarious.

NorwaySpruce Thu 06-Nov-14 09:53:26

I don't like this ad at all.

I liked all of the others, but this one isn't very Christmassy - they seem to have pinned everything on a 7 year old pulling faces, and a line in soft toy penguins.

Maybe Sainsburys will be better - I'm off to stalk their website. I don't suppose they will be far behind John Lewis.grin

GlaceCherries Thu 06-Nov-14 09:54:25

Oh dear, actual tears here... and the music just steers you towards it so effectively. Damn them!

Shlep Thu 06-Nov-14 09:56:42

Didn't really like it, tbh. My favourite was 2012, but I tbh loved all of them from 2010 apart from this one, I found it a bit disappointing.
