John Lewis has released its Christmas ad online, ahead of its first outing on TV tomorrow night during ‘The X Factor’.

The ad was written by the Ad agency Adam & Eve/DDB - who won the £20million account in 2009, directed by Blinkink and Hornet, and planend and bought by Manning Gottlieb OMD

The ad was made using stop-frame animation and hand-drawn figures on a 3D set.

THE AD…

The ad features two friends, a bear and a hare, playing together in the warmer months. As winter draws in, the bear becomes increasingly tired, until eventually it withdraws to its cave to hibernate. The hare leaves a present outside the cave for his friend, who on Christmas day wakes up to join the festive celebrations with all the forest animals.

The ad ends with a shot of a John Lewis alarm clock surrounded by Christmas wrapping and the line, “Give someone a Christmas they’ll never forget.”

Why isn’t the government calling the LAX shooting “terrorism?”

shortformblog:

Strong, strong roundup on the aftermath of the LAX shooting. Bringing up valid points, it is indeed true that “Based on available information, Ciancia’s alleged actions amount to a textbook case of “terrorism” according to the US government’s own definitions.” I’m going to reiterate the question again, why isn’t the media or the government calling the shooting “terrorism?” It is an important question that bears answering. 

Thought this the other day when I read about 6 inches of coverage, instead of the front page it probably would’ve been if he was Asian.
