Prequel to Alien? Directed by Alien director Ridly Scott? This is what to expect?

John Lewis Christmas Advert 2011

‘Nuff said.

Well, not really. It’s a rather long advert playing to a massive cuteness factor of a gormless looking child, waiting impatiently for Christmas day.

On the plus side, YouTube added a snowflakes option (next to the caption toggle) and the progress slider has a snowflake instead of a dot. Strangely, this snowflake option doesn’t appear on any other video I have seen recently. Nice touch though.

Anywho, without further ado, here is the video:

After watching this video, have a read of Charlie Brooker’s latest article (about this advert etc) which is not only hilarious, but shows that the advert doesn’t cause everyone to burst out in tears like they have caught their genitals in a safety door.

Click his face (if you want to, I wouldn’t want to touch his face) to go to the article.

 

[Update] Having read his article now (and watched all the other dreadful adverts) I must say the John Lewis one is the nicest of the lot for one simple reason.

It’s about giving.

The others are simply “Hey shop with us and buy loads of useless expensive junk”. But the John Lewis one is the opposite. I didn’t (and won’t) cry at the advert, but it’s impressive that they went this route.  Of course it is a marketing thing (make people think we care more about being nice than profit) but at least they are trying to show a non-profit-making side of their company.

Good for them. Makes me glad I shop at their Waitrose store on a regular basis.

This is all that’s left

I love this youtube channel. I think it’s the host (Michael) who has such a clear well pronounced voice.

His channel seems to have something for everyone, from intelligent videos like this, to crazy products and funny images.

STOP THIS CRUELTY! Puppy is shot by owner!

Rather funny

Self Promotion: Who Am I?

I know who I am, I haven’t lost my mind. Instead, I have just posted a video of my latest performance.

Let me know what you think in the comments please

This child is DOOMed…lol

Every time I see a video like this, it gives me many ideas for the pranks I can pull on my future children. Such as a water pistol fight where I use orange juice instead of water. Or something really smelly.

I think I am going to be a great Dad lol 😀

Darth Christmas – Flash Mob

Yet another flash mob. This time it’s Darth Vader conducting them:

Speaking of Darth Vader and Christmas, Tomorrow is Ace Comics (Colchester, Essex)’s Vader Grotto:

 

Jedi Ninjas….

…next it will be zombie Jedi…oh wait

 

 

 

 

Wild Bear…is a gentleman

I don’t know why, but every time I see an animal do human things, I think it’s cute. Well, unless the human thing is along the lines of starring on X-factor. No animal should have to suffer that.
