    Hello, I uploaded my cover of Keanes song at about 10am this morning, and it said 'thank you for your submission' (or something to that effect!) However, I've been looking for it all day in the entries section and it's nowhere to be seen?... Please tell me it did upload and will be considered in the christmas ad competition! Let me know! Thanks

    • Jeremy Mathias

      Me too - uploaded the song successfully at around midday, but it's nowhere to be seen. John Lewis don't appear to be monitoring this discussion, so I doubt we'll ever be much the wiser on this one.

    Same thing happened to me for my song..bad internet connection & i missed the deadline from 5mins.. not fair :/ & it also didnt say at what time the entries would close today.. i thought we'd have until 11:59pm or something like this.. i will upload it on my channel anyway but still.. shame :/

  • Natasha Nicholls Music

    Been trying to submit my song but it just says' Error saving submission 'Please try again' or sometimes thanks, but I cannot see my video - could you please advise me if you have received it? Can anyone help me please? I am worried about missing the deadline! I have phoned many times and I been transferred to many staff members who do not know about this competion and transferred me to someone else etc.

    So, I have been rehearsing with my sister for ages on this working out harmonies and finding people with equipment that can actually record the song and finally managed to get a recording with good enough quality to hear it properly only to find when I try to upload it that in the terms and conditions which I did not see anywhere until I went to upload it that you must be 18 or over. My sister is 15. We really loved doing it and worked really hard on it so if anyone would like to hear it so it doesn't seem completely pointless I will upload it Tuesday evening/ Wednesday. Please visit my account and take a listen, we would really appreciate any feedback. Thanks <3 xx

    You completely trashed that Smiths song. It was so bad I had to come up with a new word to describe it. Atrocipissola. If you must cover a great song at least make it a GOOD cover. HANG YOUR HEADS IN SHAME, FOR SALFORD WILL NOT BE BEST PLEASED.

  • jojeba
    jojeba 6 years ago

    What is everyone's problem? If you worked in advertising you'd realise this is flawlessly done. Tugs the right emotions, makes you laugh, and then almost cry. The song choice is great - gentle for the emotion of the ad, but lyrically it sums up the story. (Better than if it was the original Smiths track!) Stop being all Grinchy. @Frankiebean111 Really? You do realise why they used the song "Please please please let me get what I want"? WHY the hell would they use "William it was really nothing"??

  • Comebyanaway

    PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT put that on release.....i beg you. A former Partner of 5 Years that is by far the absolute worst John Lewis Advert or even promotional Material i have seen!!! I must say M&S although they chose a bunch of misfits and untalented, fame hugnry idiots to front thier campaign, it was actually well detailed. I beg you not to put this on release. It would shame the Partnership. Listen to your Partners listen to us the Owners. Send it back re-run something beautiful and mesmerizing. Just like last year! The soundtrack is really great as always with us. But this material is worse than BP2008 campaign. Why dont you just put out Partner Spirit 2005!!! That is truly a great representation of the Partnership and would let our customers see into the business. But please this campaign is horrible!!

    Leave the dog out in the cold and the humans all snug inside. What type of message does this send?

Karam might sneak up and kick your saggy butt!

  • Peter Edin
    Peter Edin 7 years ago

    Dogs especially large ones do play outside and in the snow and who knows how long it was out there, prob not very long. Also my workm8 has 2 puppies from this dog and knows that this dog is used to being outside. Given that and the fact that animals used in films and TV and monitored I only have one thing to say to the sad ******s complaining about the dog being left out....get a life!

  • Victoria Kinehan
    Victoria Kinehan 7 years ago

    We agree that yes animals should not be left out in harsh weather, and yes maybe john lewis were daft to allow this to be shown, but it is just an advert, lets look at the bigger picture here .Whether john lewis ( or any other company for that matter ) show this sort of thing or not, will not change anything, its not the advert that makes people do it, its the stupid people who havent got a braincell that leave their dogs out. Anyone with an ounce of sense would not do it !!

  • querks
    querks 7 years ago

    Yeah yeah I think we all understand the dog in the add is probably a pampered pooch who generates an added income for his owners but the issue is not about this particular dog is it!!? The issue thousands of animal lovers have with this advertising campaign is that it advocates dogs being kept in isolation in back yards!! This is not acceptable. Dogs are naturally pack animals, they do not thrive when abandoned & chained to kennel segregated from what they see as their "pack". Why anyone would wish to keep a dog if it were not intended to be accepted as part of the family is beyond me. The UK saw temperatures of -19 last year... The advert does not put across the message "For those who care about showing they care" The very opposite is true!!

    I had a neighbour who used to leave his little westie out in a kennel in one of the coldest winters ever. The poor little thing whimpered all night. So sorry if this sticks in my throat a bit. The add - posh and fortunates with a lot more cash than most of us during the recession who won't let the family pet in - in case it gets fur on the J Lewis sofa. Yeh dixzie it needs a major rethink.

  • tri509

  • Judith Broug
    Judith Broug 7 years ago

    The advert is wrong on so many levels... - promoting/highlighting irresponsible dog ownership - not in line with DEFRA's welfare guidelines for dogs and even questionable with the Defra Animal Welfare Act 2007 - also undermining the hard work of many many rescues to promote responsible dog ownership The fact is that too many dogs are left in the cold over Christmas!!!!!! And then end up in resue, I know this is not the message but put in reverse it could almost be an "adopt me" advert for a dog charity

  • Lynn Holden
    Lynn Holden 7 years ago

    This is a beautiful ad right up until that poor dog is shown in the kennel - disgraceful indeed.JL you should have more sense. Clearly no-one who worked on the ad from the marketing company who dreamed it up right thru to the people who starred in it and filmed it has any pets or knows anyone who keeps pets or someone would have flagged it. It is very sad that it has taken people like us - the 'mere' public to see how awful the image is. Lest hope that together we can get it changed at the very least. If ads werent powerful marketing tools no one would make any so can we have a better more appropriate ending to this PLEASE.

  • mouseshadow2001

  • DogCast Radio
    DogCast Radio 7 years ago

    This advert conveys completely the wrong message about the way to treat a dog. Dogs do not belong stuck out in the snow in a ramshackle kennel with no door - even if it does have fairy lights. This is dangerous and just plain wrong. Please let John Lewis know that you will not tolerate them promoting the neglect of dogs. A dog cannot live in the snow with inadequate shelter - dogs belong in the house with their family.

    Alexistarr - politically correct: There's a black person somewhere in every group scene. But there's also a boy and a girl and a dog and a cat in their family, and the girl does cooking while the boy plays football outside. Sometimes stereotypes/tokens are useful, particularly when you've only got a minute and a half. I prefer this version of the song to Billy Joel's incidentally, and I heard his first.

    I have to be honest this advert threw me, the only other advert that did this was the Hovis one { yes we all know which one } quite superb and in truth I disagree with alot of comments , life is of course very different for everyone and Im sure John Lewis even with there big budget didnt wish to show Divorce , drugs , abortion and credit card bills :) etc,,, In fact this advert really does show the normal persons life.. total genuis to the people behind making it.

    I love this song, they should have used the Billy Joel original, I hate cover versions. Did you spot the politically correct bit in the commercial? :-)

    this add is absolutley amazing. for a retailer who had never put out a radio or tv ad before 2000 look at us now!!! Britain's Favourite Retailer, Best Price, Best Department Store, Best for Quality, Value and Service, its actually interesting that Which? Verdict and all the others have to make up something new for us to Win because our customers suggest for them to do so..........I was a former Partner, but will always be a Partner at Heart, i hope that i may one day Retire with the John Lewis Partnership. I love Our Business. Whens Part 2 being released??? And the comments on any of the ads on TVclip don't compare to the comments that are received on John Lewis ads. Keep up the good work.

    Absolutely beautiful and a true work of art. Anything so simple which evokes such strength of feeling. The sense of the ages of woman and the loss of childhood and dare I say the cycle of life. A celebration of womanhood and humanity.

    I watched the never knowingly undersold ad in my media studies lesson the whole class adored it, including the teacher that's why she showed us, I adore the song and it really does speak to everyone, we have people from 15 -18 and the teacher who is 20 something in our class and we all adored this even the guys.

    I heard this the other day, but didn't realise the source. I just thought, "How come Billy Joel has completely simplified the original piano part, and then put it quite far back in the mix to disguise how much his piano playing has deteriorated?" Now I realise it's not him after all. And I haven't a clue what John Lewis are trying to say about their brand by using a song that actually has quite a biting, laconic lyric.

  • gavsky23
    gavsky23 8 years ago

    Great advert but struck me as a really odd choice of song! The lyrics aren't actually at all complementary about the "woman" in the song, it's mostly really negative. Guess it's like the Polices' "I'll be watching you" - a very dark song that so many people think is a love song. I wonder if the ad creatives for this one are being ironic, and no-one at John Lewis realised!
