Small green dragon Excitable Edgar is back on the tills in John Lewis this week. Asked if he’d be equally excitable working in a busy retail environment in the run up to Christmas he said “It’ll be just as stimulating to be on the shop floor promptly in the morning. Filming the commercial was fun but now it’s business as usual.
“I’m on small electricals most of the week with Sandra, who likes to go to lunch as late as possible and always has a packet of Polos handy. It’s thrilling when someone buys a SodaStream or a four slot toaster. On Thursday I’m in haberdashery because Janice has a day off. It won’t be dull, I might get asked for advice on buttons. On Friday I’m in hosiery with Julie. I’m hoping for an update on her romance with Dave the security guard and we have to rearrange the thick tights into colour order. The week will fly by. I’m never knowingly under exhilarated”.
