      The two adverts I loved over Christmas was the John Lewis one with Monty and Mabel and also the WWI Football Truce Christmas Day advert that Sainsburys did in conjunction with The Royal British Legion :yes:

          I had forgotten about the bear and the hare advert from last year AB which was very good but the only bit I thought was a bit wrong was the fact that we don'tget Bears in this country:snork:.Didnt like M&S's this year or the Tesco one.:sad:so not surprised that their profits are down whereas John Lewis's were up which says a lot:snork:

                      That's the really clever part of the advertisement. They got a male budgie that could do female impersonations. :heehee:
