Here we are then, for some, the official start of Christmas with the John Lewis Christmas Ad for 2016 – Buster the Boxer. As usual, Kleenex at the ready!
This is the story of a little girl called Bridget who loves to bounce. When her mum and dad buy her a trampoline for Christmas, they soon discover that she isn’t the only one with a passion for jumping.
The music is a cover of ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’ performed by Vaults – the original, of course, was by Randy Crawford.
…and here is the link for the FAKE John Lewis Christmas Advert that was doing the rounds back in June, created by a school-boy for a school project. Genius!!!!
..and for a bit of nostalgia, here are a few of the previous authentic John Lewis big Christmas ads – 2010 was when they started play on your emotions (lovely!)
