To "Dave", the person from the University College of Northampton (whom I have to admit to not knowing), thank you very much for your email. I had still been looking for that clip, and I really appreciate you forwarding it to me! :o)

For those of you who want to know what the email was about, click here, then click here! :o)

I gotta say that i hate that advert, ever since i lost my granny through cancer this advert has been on since then upsetting me with their "we havent got a magic mirror" it just makes me angry and i feel like they are taunting anyone who has lost someone by cancer i have probebly seen that advert into treble figures and it has upset me a little everytime.

Its strange as it was just earlier that i was saying how much i hate that ad..it probebly is a good ad for getting funds for the charity but it sure as hell is a great way to upset people who have been affected by cancer.

I can see how its probebly a beautifully made advert for most people.

Sorry if ive gone on...that ad just upsets me alot.

I thought i should jsut give my honest opinion...i guess the ad does move me...just a little too much.

Yea, I don't like that Cancer advert either, I feel like its like trying to emotionaly blackmail money out of people.
I know that these days it's getting increasingly difficult to grap peoples attention in the ad breaks but I think that advert goes a little too far.

Just my 2p's worth :)

I have to agree with my bro. That ad always cuts me very deep, because of James and because of my Granny. It's the only ad that can make me cry every time. I have to switch it over the moment it starts because I've cried enough at things that have provoked tears for no reason. I've cried plenty for James and for myself as well, but I don't need a TV ad pulling at my heartstrings and making me feel bad.

Yea, that is a nice advert.

Moving on to a competly different advert which I saw on Top Gear last night -
Toyota Bugga advert, (Listen out for the bit at the end).

Hillarious I thought :)
