Ooooh, the issue of wearing pyjamas in public - especially on the school run - is such a hot potato.


Some head teachers have tried to ban parents from wearing their night gear to drop the kids off, and plenty of shops now have a No PJs policy.

So perhaps this new ad, from car makers Vauxhall, could be seen to be going against the grain somewhat with its #PyjamaMamas campaign.

The ad says:

They tried to ban them from the supermarkets

They tried to ban them from the school run

But that didn't stop them

Nothing can stop them from taking care of their families

They are #PyjamaMamas

Hmmm, so what do you think?

As you can imagine, the ad's had a huge amount of publicity - and viewers are on both sides of the fence with this one.

"Vauxhall, stylish pyjamas are still pyjamas," says one commenter. "The type that don't get dressed before dropping little junior off at school before Jezza at 9.25am should hardly be something that should be aspired to."

"Another reason not to buy Vauxhall," says another.

Then this: "I don't like Vauxhall cars, I'm more of a designer cars like Mercedes kinda person but this advert is awesome."

And finally: "I need to know the genius who came up with this. It's honestly the best ad idea ever, and that song... well done!"

What do you think?

Where do you stand on the PJs in public debate? Is it something you'd never dream of doing?

Or perhaps you roll out of bed and up to school in your nightie every day of the week without batting an eyelid. After all, it's no one else's business, right?
