This year's John Lewis Christmas ad is an urban fairytale of foxes, badgers, hedgehogs and squirrels all bouncing merrily together on a child's trampoline. However not everybody was taken with the ad, with some pointing out the risks of bovine TV spread by badgers and the mess and disease spread by foxes in towns.


If you haven’t seen the ad yet, then you can watch it right now.

Those who don’t see badgers and foxes as quite so cuddly certainly had something to say about it. Leave a comment and let us know what you thought!

Alasdair Mitchell, columist for Shooting Times commented: “The foxes would have pooed all over the trampoline and probably given a horrible disease to the poor child. While the badger would have eaten the hedgehog and with a bit of luck the local council would have come round to trap the grey squirrel. But none of that would have made a good TV commercial of course.”
