    I'll b honest & say that I didn't know that Waitrose & John Lewis are owned by the same Co (probably as I can't afford to shop in either of them), but tbh both of their adverts were as crap as each other anyway. It's almost as tho all the big Co's have gone for a boring neutral Christmas message this year. The only decent ones are Aldi & Kevin the Carrot taking the piss out of Coca Cola

    Why is his delivery of the word 'stollen' so darn good?

  • Inucat
    Inucat 19 days ago

    wait English speaking people pronounce "Stollen" nearly like "stolen"? The s is actually a "sch" sound so "sch-tollen" would be correct but then you pronounce Lidl wrong as well

      Stolen does not sound like Stollen to an English speaking person.

    Yes, John Lewis Stores have 'Food Hall' sections, where they sell the same groceries as their subsidary Waitrose. However, the FACT remains that this ad SUCKS Big Time!

    • Jasmine

      The partner doesn’t mean John Lewis . It means the people who work. For John Lewis and Waitrose own a share of the company

    • Conan Gregory
      Conan Gregory 24 days ago +2

      Not quite. They are owned by the same company, but the "partner" refers to the employees...
      "...the design aims to better reflect the company's democratic ethos. Established in 1929, each of the employees is a partner with partial ownership of the company."

    The John Lewis Christmas advert sucks. Basically an Elton John advert for his upcoming tour/film. I loved the Sainsbury's one, that kid plugging himself in was hilarious. This Waitrose one is very funny and clever haha, did they know their other John Lewis ad would suck?

    • Liz Smith
      Liz Smith 24 days ago

      +Anna Jolie I am not saying you are wrong in how you feel, we all have out different opinions on adverts and celebrities. I just like Elton John's singing and the last time I looked it up he was as much a human as you and I. All the Christmas ads this year have been pretty good, for all the shops. I have noticed John Lewis/Waitrose ads do seem to have a more humorous bent this year and no, I don't think that John Lewis timed their ad for Elton's latest tour. As far as I know Christmas comes every year at the same time.

    • Anna Jolie
      Anna Jolie 24 days ago

      +Liz Smith I have nothing against Elton John, just clearly the timing of their advert was also a promotion for him. I prefer when celebrities aren't involved at all with the Christmas adverts and the advert is just about the spirit of Christmas. I would say the same if it was any celebrity who had upcoming tours/concerts. I liked the Sainsbury's celebs, just fun and Christmas spirit.

    • Liz Smith
      Liz Smith 27 days ago

      +Anna Jolie John Lewis does great commercials as does Waitrose. I think they have a sense of humor about them frankly. And I personally think there can never be too much Elton John. (Yes, I am a fan of his Also of John Lewis)

    • Anna Jolie
      Anna Jolie 28 days ago +1

      +Liz Smith Yeah that's what I did they know their John Lewis ad would suck when they made it, so they had their Waitrose one ready to go? Or did they make it quickly after they realised people weren't a fan of the John Lewis one
