I'm no veggie, but I'm not a big fan of animated animals advocating the consumption of their relatives.

That's why the laughing cow is so sinister when you think about it.

I must admit I enjoy the latest PlaySkool ad: "It's non stop popping, ball dropping fun!".

Gets me every time.

Don't have a lot of love for the Littlewoods advert currently out, ugh, singing children.

Not so much irritated or entertained, but I am BAFFLED by the Clinton Cards celebrity video message service. Are people actually going to spend £4 to send a generic video clip to their friends?

Also, I present the Littlewoods christmas advert for 2011. If you make it to the end then you are punished.

They're running that on the radio as well. It's just... horribly cringey.

Terry Scott must be turning in his grave.

So, along with Iceland, no fathers / widowers shop in Littlewoods then. Remarkable.

It just about sums up what is wrong with this country, rampant commercialism at Christmas amongst younger people in society.
