    There is something of a tradition in the UK of the media covering Christmas TV ads by department stores/supermarkets.

    In particular, people now await the release of the 'John Lewis' Christmas advert. John Lewis is a department store whose main difference is the fact that it is a partnership where the employees are partners and share in the profits of the business.

    So they do tend to provide a better level of service than competing stores whose employment strategy revolves around employing teenagers at minimum wage and not giving them a pay rise in 3 years

    But before I realise that I should have posted this in debates, the reason that people specifically await the John Lewis advert stems from, I believe, the advert they ran in 2011.


    Feel free to post your own favourite adverts.

    The budweiser clydsdale commercials may soon be a thing of the past. The company apparently feels that they are not appealing to the younger crowd.

    Here's a link to some of them.
