That Slade Song

Now I'm all up for a bit of Christmas cheer but would the Advertising Standards Agency please outlaw the use of 'Merry Xmas Everybody' by Slade. It's plain irritating. It's 2006, 33 years since its release (I didn't know that, I checked on Wikipedia obviously). Enough is enough.

And ASDA, as a protest against your use of a choral version of it in your current TV ad, I've decided to boycott your stores for one year.

Merry Christmas.

Yeah, bastard. I love that song.

It was OK until everyone overplayed it beyond excess.

I'm just saying a bit of originality would be nice. An advert set to Aled Jones' Walking In The Air for example. Everyone loves that now, don't they? ;)
