Chain store highlights why it's probably best to buy from a dedicated store this Christmas

Argos Christmas TV advert re-ignites ‘bicycle shaped object’ debate

Typical of ‘bicycle shaped object’ mistakes, the front forks are fitted backwards in the advert. It also appears that the pedals do not carry reflectors.
