Not so magical Emma...

Errrr hello! I'll explain my absence a little bit further on down but I just HAD to share the new Lancome perfume add with you. Now, I like Emma Watson as much as the next Potter obsessive but this advert is totally naff. Let me elaborate:

1. Music sounds like they've bought it from one of those sites where you don't have to credit the artist.
2. She's trying to be Diane Keaton.
3. HOW many times has this story been told before?

How dissappointing! I expect better of you Lancome and some originality at least! It's not that it's a terrible advert (cough cough) It's just...trés cringe.

Anyway, hello. If you follow me on Twitter (and haven't unfollowed from my pretty boring tweetage over the last few weeks) then you will have seen my plans of a blogging bank holiday were ruined by unforseen circumstances! However, my quota of depressed tweets for the year has been well and truly filled and i'm happy to announce i'm back in the game.

Cringe! How funny would it have been if he handed her a copy of Harry Potter in the bookshop?

Wow, that really is awful, and the bit where the hat goes onto her head at the end is the worst! x

Haha, that was naff! Your comment about the music made me giggle though :D

I completely agree! As soon as she put it up on her fb page I went to see it all excited and then i was like 'em, is this it?' i feel like the flow is somehow.. really bad. and it's just is like.. no no no.. I really wanted to like i really did, because I love Emma, but the ad is really naff! (though arguably that's not her fault :P- but tbh acting isnt ground breaking either)

Oh see, I quite like it. I realise it is quite cheesy, but I do rather think it's quite cute. :)

I do think sometimes her hair looks a little thin though?
