6 of the Best: Christmas commercial edition
Nothing brings the out the bah humbug in me more than having too much to do and not enough time to do it while every second freakin' person asks me if I'm "ready" for Christmas. But, if there's one thing that can snap me out of it, it's laughing at the misfortune of others.
Oh, and clever, funny Christmas-themed content.
1. This gift
"Darling, fix Mummy a mojito while I make dinner, would you?" Has a nice ring to it.
2. Top 10: ‘Buster the Boxer’ and ‘We’re the Superhumans’ were the most shared ads of 2016

5. Jane Caro's thoughts on the Victoria's Secret show
Who better to unpack the visual wonders of the annual Victoria's Secret lingerie show than writer, commentator, feminist and totes sassy broad, Jane Caro?
I felt a little sorry for the young women, truth be told, even as they breathlessly, tearfully exulted in their moment of triumph (whoops that’s a competitor).
Here's what else she had to say.
6. IKEA renamed products after frequently Googled products that those products solved
Swedish agency, Åkestam Holst has spent the past year using Ikea to explore family dynamics in all shades - from relationship longevity to divorce. Smart marketing and SEO or too much time on their hands? You be the judge.
Maintain the rage and Netflix and chill.
