Thanks to everyone who got in touch with details of where we could watch the Shayne Ward Woolworths advertisement online.
In case you missed the popcultural milestone/millstone on the telly, you can watch it online here at a spooky advertisement website.
There's no faulting the short-term commercial thinking behind the whole ghastly exercise, but even Shayne looks embarrassed. And this is a man who's shared a stage with Chico.
Nevertheless, it's a strangely hypnotic piece of work. The clip ends, and you just find yourself flicking straight back to the start, again, and again, and again. In any genre other than reality pop we'd be inclined to see this Woolies ad as a signal that the whole scene was about to implode; the truth, of course, is that things will only get far, far worse…
