I’m not saying the ads will be as entertaining as the show itself.

The John Lewis Christmas ad has taken over British media, with my favourite reaction being the Guardian’s Moon Hitler analysis though they a;sp go on to say what it’s really about. But within hours of airing, the parodies were there… including this mashup with the movie Leon… And still they come…
It’s traditional. Take a rock song, rerecord it in a twee style, and use it as a background to a heart tugging advert for Christmas.

Nice they got round to using that yellow blood splattered DC logo though. The ad will also appear on TV and all over the DC and Warners booths at San Diego Comic Con. Also, Akira, One Piece, […]

A Little Bleeder in Manhattan writes; Was walking to work this morning and saw this ad on 47th Street, between Madison and Fifth avenues. First time I can ever recall seeing an ad like that for a comic, OGN, whatever. It is a rarity. Though I do remember an experience as a teenager going up […]
