Everbody's Free (To Parody)

A blatant parody of Max Ehrmann's Desiderata, not the first - Billy Connolly & Baz Luhrmann being obvious ones though it could be vaguely compared to the Trainspotting Choose Life speech - and it's not the last parody, but one I liked enough to save it in amongst some clippings for sketchbooks. I think it's sweet, and it's a clothing advert which (a) has no clothes in it and (b) tells you to be individual and buy things because you like them, not because they're fashionable. Even from Boden that's a change from the bombardment we usually receive of shops telling us what to buy to make ourselves fashionable.

Fashion is great, embrace it, chop and change it, mix it and "before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares? ... He's a mile away and you've got his shoes." - Billy Connolly's Desiderata
