It's a parody of the John Lewis ad, you can hear the original version in the background at the end.

Slow Moving Millie: 'Morrissey said it was delightful' - The Telegraph

Neil McCormick meets Amelia Warner, the singer behind the John Lewis commercial.

Excerpt:

“I was born in the Eighties and grew up with this music, but the decade was so unforgiving to songwriting. It was all huge synths and electric drums and weird sounds. It was interesting to turn that on its head and get at the song underneath.”

The Smiths’ song, however, is performed straight. “It is so perfect I wouldn’t have the audacity to change it. I connected a piece of myself to it; it just resonated, something came through.”

To her joy, the composers have approved her version. “Morrissey said it was delightful, and Johnny Marr thinks it’s great.” This may be the thing that has most upset Smiths fans: that their heroes would allow their classic to be used in such a commercial...

Statement from Morrissey:

Shelagh Delaney - true-to-you.net

SHELAGH DELANEY

A genuine poet has passed through the world. Shelagh Delaney exercised a wide influence with the shock of plain language, and shafts of satiric wit, into a severe and donnish 1950s world where working-class people had thus far been assumed to be simplistic, flag-waving cannon-fodder. Her writing was a magnificent confession of life as it was commonly lived in her hometown of Salford, with all of its carefully preserved monotony. She was attacked for immorality, which, then as now, is proof that you have hit on something.

'A Taste of Honey' was a sentiment that had not been expressed before its time - far more real than life.

It was the Salford of sagging roofs, rag and bone men, walk-up flats, derelict sites, rear-entrance buses, and life in tight circumstances.

Shelagh Delaney did not become fat with...
