I have a question - is the woman in this advert...
...the same as the woman in this one...
- they seem very similar to me.
and is there anyone else out there who finds both adverts annoying?
The new John Lewis ad is very clever
It depicts a woman aging from babyhood to 70 years in 90 seconds. There is a lot of detail in it, and it is quite intriguing to watch.
But don't study it too closely or it will start to irritate you because of the little inconsistencies.
A woman who is 70 now will not have had a nylon play tunnel as a baby in the 1940's. Or a fibre tip pen on her desk when she was 10 - they were not invented till the 1960's. And the fashions aren't quite right either as the ad progresses. And she seems to have a laptop remarkably early too.
But I do like the Billy Joel song!
