Why the John Lewis ad isn't romantic in the slightest...

So it's that time of year again, the Christmas adverts are out in force and as usual there's one in particular that everyone is talking about... the John Lewis ad.

We've had some top class ads for them over the past couple of years which has left us all anticipating the next. My ultimate favourite being the More Than A Woman ad from 2010. I was heavily pregnant with Little E when it graced our screens and I literally shed a tear EVERY time I saw it - genius on there part I'm sure you'll agree. So yes... I love the ads... yes... I know the quality is great but in all honesty the ads are just a nice thing on my TV - I couldn't shop there regularly - I just don't have John Lewis money.

Anyway.... I digress...

The reason I'm writing this post is that I keep hearing how beautiful the latest ad is. "It's so romantic..." yadda yadda yadda.

Well it's not.

You see I'm of the opinion that that "romantic" snowman is just a typical idiot bloke. Yep - next time you watch it I'm sure you'll see that I'm right. You see I've watched it a couple of times now and what I've now realised is this.

The snowman
waits til the sun goes down...

then he gives Mrs Snowman 'the look' then fecks off without her leaving her all sad faced...

she's non the wiser about his liaison with 'another bird' (he's totally checking out the robin's red breast) #justsayin

He heads off to the city (probably to meet the lads) all happy and smiley having the time of his life without a thought for Mrs Snowman...

then he does the walk of shame home and rocks up the next morning (probably hungover) with a crappy gift. That's not romantic!!!

Romantic would have been him just handing over the scarf he was wearing and not using the shopping trip as a cover up for drunken night out!!

There... I said it.

Now you can all gasp and throw things at me. That is all.
