The Marks & Sparks Christmas ad? It’s like your first whiff of mincie pie…


Here she is. Twiggy! Doing Madonna! In Madonna’s Vogue video.

Just part of the extravaganza that is traditionally the M&S Christmas ad campaign (though they will never hit the giddy heights of Dame Shirley Bassey doing ‘Let’s Get This Party Started’ – DSB! Singing an ode to dropping an E!)

Anyways and hoos, this year’s ad has upped the comedy (well, Jamie Redknapp’s in it) by recreating a series of famous dance routines from films, telly and vids. Like Vogue here, Chicago, Cabaret, Single Ladies, West Side Story, Grease, Glee (or High School Musical – we’re in no position to say). They have also added Peter Kay into the mix in case you weren’t picking up on the comedy.

It is what it is: a Christmas institution like being sick in the photocopy room, getting something shit for secret Santa and contemplating the murder of your parents.

See the video over the jump…httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5QjzGMNOWI

  3. M&S rips off Glee, which ripped off Our Glorious Leader, who ripped off everyone. SOOOO unoriginal. Can’t M&S afford their own ideas?

  4. I can only imagine the thousands of manhours spent in advertising offices deciding which wanky song they should use in the ad. And then the client went with this shit.
