HotUKDeals Of The Day - Wednesday 8th December

8 December 2010

hukd_logob1It’s 30 years to the day since poor Beatle John Lennon was shot to death in the mean streets of New York. Today, as a tribute, Deals Of The Day features three carefully-selected bargains that represent the man and his message.

As ever, the bargains come courtesy of HotUKDeals. RIP Beatle John.

821634_1During the late 1970s, Lennon famously became a house-husband, a recluse who stayed at home, raising his son Sean. If he were doing the same thing today, chances are he’d park the kid in front of a DVD while playing console games on another larger telly on the other side of the room.

Among his favourites would almost certainly be Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit for the Xbox 360 or PS3, reminding him as it would of the Beatles’ classic song Drive My Car. Lennon would no doubt be delighted by its £22.99 price tag.

821566_1While he was still alive, John Lennon was a campaigner for a number of issues – including world peace, erm, and loads of other stuff. Including (and you probably weren’t aware of this) the right for all humans to have access to an acceptably soft brand of toilet tissue.

With that in mind, he’d have been delighted with the current special offer on Triple Velvet then. A jumbo pack of 16 rolls can currently be had for only £3.97, as opposed to the usual £7.95. As Lennon’s trademark catchphrase went, “That’s ass-wipingly good value!”

821648_1Finally, as we all know, Lennon lived in his hometown of Liverpool until shortly before his death, and was regularly seen on the Kop at Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC, leading the crowd in a chorus of Twist And Shout or Revolution No. 9.

He’d almost certainly have been keen to take advantage of the latest offer that could get free kids tickets for Liverpool’s upcoming Europa League fixture against Utrecht. He’d probably take four pint-sized Beatles lookalikes, just for a laugh. Those Scousers and their humour!
