New Amazon gifting TV advert

In today’s troubled world, Amazon have taken a bit of a risk with their latest TV advert which features a vicar (a real one from Paddington Green Church, London) and an Imam (principal of the Muslim School, Oadby). Amazon say that they consulted the Church of England, the Muslim Council of Great Britain and the Christian Muslim Forum to ensure that they were respectful to both religions featured in the advert.

The two religious leaders are pictured as being friends who although from different religions have a common problem and both decide to give the other a present but end up buying each other the same thing.

There’s nothing in the advert which screams Christmas, but the message is pretty obvious, if you want to buy someone a thoughtful gift then Amazon is the place to buy it – preferably on Amazon Prime with one-click checkout.
