Here come the Christmas ads! Why not start them in July, you greedy bastards? Sorry, nipping last year's eggnog. Anyway, British retailer Argos goes the faux-'70s-TV-special route in this CHI & Partners spot, showing Bing Crosby beatboxing to his audience's delight. A kid in the crowd uses the chain's name as a verb ("He Argos-ed it"), which is like an early lump of coal in my stocking. Yes, I wear stockings. I'm OK with who I am. Here's a classic clip from Bing's 1977 seasonal show with guest David Bowie—always a welcome pairing beneath the tree.
