So if I buy my Christmas presents from Argos they come in a dented box and I have to do all the wrapping up? Or I can shop elsewhere and receive quality customer service and a free giftwrapping service? Decisions, decisions. - Oliver Gandy
Loving the mad wrapping experience that is supposed to be derided. - Charlie Robertson
How did they get this so wrong??? - Ronnie Blogsville
Go to Argos, get a catalogue, search through it, fill out a form, queue, pay, queue while watching numbers on a screen, get a box thrust at you. Or go to a shop, touch the product, get it wrapped, pay, go. You'd hope someone in the sign-off process for this campaign thought "Hmm, doesn't this make Argos look crap?" - Paul Cackett
Have a feeling this highlights a truth that isn't a truth for some people. If you're the kind of person who likes paying through the nose for all the extras, you're not likely to go near Argos anyway. So this ad targets the kind of people who want bargains and no frills, which clearly some of us do. Just because an ad polarises does not make it ineffective. - Oliver Caporn
It's an ad for Argos, but doesn't say very much about Argos. Fundamentally flawed? Maybe. A waste of money? Probably. - Richard Hayter.
