To love the Debenhams Christmas advert this year?

This might be a bit controversial but... at the risk of starting a massive Christmas-themed bun fight, it beats the John Lewis advert hands down IMO.

I could live without the 'she's lovely but she's clumsy' trope, to be honest. Patronising as all get out.

Uh, it leaves me cold tbh. I much prefer the Martin Freeman one.

Neither are Mog though. That's the sad reality.

I don't mind it, but DH says it's a bit 'stalker-ey'.

Oooh whats the Martin Freeman one Insomni? Also love Mog ❤️ can you tell I'm a sucker for Christmas adverts? grin

It's effing awful. Cringey, cliched, and box ticky.

Hate it.

Ahh just seen the Vodafone advert! Love Martin Freeman smile if it's any consolation, I think this year's John Lewis advert is shite. The Waitrose one might be my absolute favourite though - so cosy and lovely, and didn't seem that clichéd.

PeiPeiPing Sun 12-Nov-17 23:13:27

Yep the John Lewis one is over-rated and shite.

Also very box ticky.

Many of these stores seem intent on telling a shitty naff 'story' and not actually telling us what they sell or how much anything is! confused

I love it. It's the only one this year that's given me a fuzzy feeling. So far...
