Christ I remember that. There was another Woolies one of similar vintage starring Joe Brown as some sort of circus ringmaster. Contained the frankly awesomely bizarre rhyming couplet:

Can we get you records? Of course we can
Seven and the Ragged Tiger - Duran Duran

So must have been around 1984

You wouldn't know, you've never heard me sing ( as far as i know?) and I have never sung this one before. I do sing some John Lennon songs ( Watching the Wheels, Beautiful Boy and Imagine etc) and of course lots of Beatles stuff - but you just mentioning me in the same sentence as Mr Lennon is an honour!!!

Bit harsh Nick, it ain't my fault the Penguin has been cooked at too high a temperature and neither is the faux pas of serving with Brussel Sprouts.

And everyone remembers which store it is.

I quite like that they push a 'feeling' about Christmas rather than actual products. That must have been a hard pitch to sell when the advertising company first suggested it to John Lewis. Other companies are trying to copy that this year.

Mind you, they'll probably sell a lot of penguins now!

I think I prefer last year's, partly because the animation was so good.

I've recently finished working with an agency on a 60 second ad for a big charity.

They wanted £50k for it. The cost of production was £22.5k. The rest was for creative concepts - 3 storyboards and a PowerPoint presentation. Not a bad days work.

Generous of them to only do it within budget thanks to their 15% charity discount.

I would be fairly certain that they lost money on it.
