Has anyone seen it. It's absolutely brilliant. Made me cry.

It's lovely. That wee boxer's face! Course, all everyone will want for Christmas now is a boxer puppy. I can almost hear the puppy farmers rubbing their hands together.

As usual John Lewis pulls out a cracker!

Friend used to have a boxer totally mad.  Used to jump over your head when standing. Pulled their pushchair with child in across road on its side. Couldn't control it at all.. not a boxer fan or trampolines either in gardens

Bit late for them to start breeding now thankfully

Not seen it yet but I've read an article online saying there's been complaints from angry parents that the video shows the trampoline being built as a present for the daughter and it's confusing children as it should be Father Christmas delivering the trampoline.

Bit bulky on the sleigh for Father Christmas to deliver fully assembled, especially if he has a lot of orders. Much more sensible for him to deliver it in a box for parents to put together. :wink:

LOL, Father Christmas delivered the contents of the sock at the end of my bed, not assembled trampolines in the garden! There's no pleasing some people.

Let's be honest, the badger would have eaten the hedgehog before he even got on the trampoline! #savethehogs

Only boxer I've been in close contact with was HUGE for his breed,this was back when I was terrified of all dogs.He was such a sweetie though,didn't mind getting slobbery kisses off him. My issue with this advert is what kind of a sadistic parent buys their kid an outside only toy in the middle of winter?!?! Lol.

I was a wee bit disappointed in the ad...saw it for the first time tonight. I always look forward to the Christmas ads with all the graphic sparkles and charms but this one....well it just didn't do anything for me
- By St.Domingo Date 12.11.16 08:50 GMT Upvotes 2
I agree. It's a nice advert but I've no desire to see it again.
The Aldi/Lidl one with the carrot is nice.
- By MamaBas Date 12.11.16 08:58 GMT
It was an amazing advert, cleverly put together BUT I have no doubt, as is always the case when a specific breed is targetted in adverts, the Boxr people are cringing re the BYBs (and others!) jumping (hah) on the bandwagon.
- By Lexy [gb] Date 12.11.16 09:27 GMT Upvotes 1
I nearly posted yesterday but others were saying how good it was I decided not to.

I wasn't impressed either, past JL ads have been better. I much prefer the Aldi Christmas advert this year...

'WARNING'
Don't look if you haven't got a sense of humour :grin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDVU_TGLJU0
- By Carrington Date 12.11.16 11:11 GMT
Oh, I love the advert, it's brilliant! Well done JL.

Adore the Fox's and the Boxer had me in stitches with his floppy bouncing. :grin:

My only criticism is even though there was snow I forgot it was there, so would have been nice to see some snow actually falling but.............

It made me want to buy a trampoline, so worked for me.....

Compassion, that was funny! :grin:
- By saxonjus Date 12.11.16 13:04 GMT
Not seen the Aldi Carrott advert.
- By furriefriends [gb] Date 12.11.16 14:07 GMT
thank goodness it made you want the trampoline. how many are now going to want a boxer ? ps nothing wrong with boxers btw
- By Carrington Date 12.11.16 17:21 GMT Upvotes 1
You know what Furriefriends, I actually think JL have been quite clever, prob took advice from marketing etc.

If they had used a Boxer pup, then I agree Boxer breeders phones would be ringing off the hook. In using an adult /adolescent dog it doesn't have that same maternal pull at all. Strangely enough I had that wee pull for the young Fox's. :grin:

So IMO the advert did, what it was supposed to do, making the trampoline the focus, even though covered all over in cuteness and hysterics.

Normally I'd want the dog, but I wanted the trampoline. :eek: (Well, unless my subconscious has gone off dogs, ring the Dr. :eek: :eek:)
- By suejaw Date 12.11.16 17:35 GMT
It's sweet but preferrEd their Penguin advert was it last year and you could actually buy this toy too.
Thought the foxes were very cute but the end with the Boxer it left me rather disappointed.
much prefer the carrot advert
- By furriefriends [gb] Date 12.11.16 17:50 GMT
ok you had better send you request up the chimney before FC runs out of trampolines.!

A lot goes into the psychology of these adverts it always fascinates me the whole area of marking and how we are bought into something

Saw the Carrot ad this evening...NOW that's a great piece of work..So cute and look forward to seeing it again throughout the season
- By Jeangenie [gb] Date 12.11.16 19:58 GMT

>Saw the Carrot ad this evening...NOW that's a great piece of work.


Seeing the other poor carrot, sliced up and cooked but still able to blink its eyes, freaks me out! It's enough to put children off carrots for life!
- By furriefriends [gb] Date 12.11.16 20:31 GMT
Noooo. Don't think I shall be watching that then

Agree, cringed when he slid against the cheese grater!
Perhaps German sense of humour.
- By saxonjus Date 12.11.16 23:53 GMT
Just saw the Carrott advert mmm not keen really. Carrots with their heads off then backing into the grater and slicing some of his back off.... then I expected Rudolph to bite his head off! Not really my favourite advert.
- By gsdowner Date 13.11.16 00:48 GMT
I like the M&S one!

Oh wow, love it.  I can't wait for it to come on and smile every time he says OH GRATE!!!  Really love that sort of humour.
- By Nikita [gb] Date 13.11.16 13:29 GMT
I saw something the other day about there being a surge in dog owners trying to buy trampolines for dogs since this ad came out.  No idea if it's true but my meanie side really, really hopes it is :lol:
- By saxonjus Date 13.11.16 14:06 GMT
I adore the Waitrose advert.... made me well up! M&S good but Mrs Claus the carbon footprint you leave for one present!
- By St.Domingo Date 13.11.16 16:03 GMT Upvotes 1
Just seen the Waitrose advert - a definite winner !!
- By debbo198 [gb] Date 13.11.16 16:36 GMT
Have you seen the boxer watching the boxer ad

Well Nikita, might not be so far fetched :grin:

When I visited one of my friends this summer, her Staffie kept going on her sons trampoline and having a wee bounce funny to watch, (but nothing like the Boxer)...... we might see dogs bouncing above fences all over the country yet. :lol:
- By Nikita [gb] Date 14.11.16 08:43 GMT
Oh, I know dogs do it - next door's trampoline is a favourite spot for theirs!  I just hope that there really are people going into pet shops and trying to buy trampolines specially made for dogs, that's what's supposed to have been happening :twisted:
- By compassion [gb] Date 14.11.16 09:15 GMT
Good advert, thanks for posting.
- By MamaBas Date 15.11.16 16:47 GMT Edited 15.11.16 16:52 GMT

You beat me to it - and yes I have.

Hopefully this is another - a Westie watching the original advert.    Puts me in mind of my Basset watching Flyball/Agility at Crufts.   Early on after landing in Canada, one of my Bassets watched a Polar Bear lumber across the TV and shot to the side of the set looking for it.    After a while he realised there was no bear in the room, and actually looked quite embarrassed about what he started doing!   And if you think Bassets can't look embarrassed - you'd be wrong.
- By gsdowner Date 16.11.16 09:16 GMT
Did anyone see the version where the characters have been changed to obama as the dad, hillary as the child and trump as the boxer?

Strange how some people's mind work!
- By Nikita [gb] Date 16.11.16 09:21 GMT
I love that one! :lol:
- By Brainless [gb] Date 16.11.16 15:11 GMT Upvotes 1
When I see the advert now it's what I see in my head, the Boxer as Trump
- By JeanSW Date 16.11.16 15:59 GMT Upvotes 3
Ok, I know the topic is Xmas adverts, but my present favourite advert (not Xmas) is the OXO one.  I love it at the end when the kids (being truthful) drop the clanger that there is no dessert.  Those two ginger kids are ace.

Does anyone else like the humour in this one?
- By Lacy Date 16.11.16 18:05 GMT Upvotes 1
It's from last year but my favourite is, Vodafone Raising a Turkey, Christmas 2015.

Hope it works.
- By saxonjus Date 16.11.16 22:07 GMT
A new Carrott advert tonight much better
