Someone to tidy & improve please.
RSPCA & DEFRA staff have been called out after filming of a much anticipated department store Christmas advert went horribly wrong.
The bear featured in the advert pointed out: "When you're enjoying the single most satisfying kip of the year, the last thing you need is some smartarse setting an alarm clock for the equivalent of 3AM! Of course I woke up with a sore head, and hey, I'm a bear! Even the simplest knowledge of idioms should have made the likely consequences obvious."
Speaking from his bed in Rolf's Animal Hospital, the hare admitted: "With hindsight the alarm clock (product code 734 32301) wasn't a wise choice and I should have just gone with the electric overblanket (product code 868 10204) he'd been hinting like a bear for, but I wanted it to be a surprise."
The RSPCA spokesman said all the animals involved will get veterinary treatment, at which point the DEFRA representative interjected; "Except the badgers, the bear did us a bit of a favour taking out those stripey sods."
A John Lewis spokesman commented that they were lucky to keep the advert cute and heartwarming thanks to careful editing and a fair bit of CGI.
