John Lewis Christmas Advert (2022)

Reading time: 2 minutes...

Yes, it’s that time of year again โ€“ The annual John Lewis Christmas Advert! ๐ŸŽ…. Right on cue too, as pretty much every year it’s the first week in November.

Usually, the first look any of the public get is at 8am, when it’s released across social media. This year was a little different though! Those with John Lewis accounts were emailed first thing to give them a ‘private’ viewing from the unGodly hour of 6am on the John Lewis App! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

This year’s offering is entitled The Beginner and strays a little from the ‘full-on’ Christmassy-theme of previous years. What remains the same is the re-recording of a familiar song as its soundtrack. For 2022, it’s a reworked version of All the Small Things by Blink-182. American singer, actor and entertainer Mike Geier performs this new version of the classic song.

The story is about a man attempting to master the skateboard โ€“ and failing miserably! At this stage, we’re not sure why!

I think you’ll still need your tissues by the end, but a quick straw-poll afterwards around these parts suggested that this one too, was a bit ‘Marmite’ in its reception. Some loved it, and some did not!

This year, JL teamed up with Action for Children and Who Cares? Scotland and has developed a range of related merchandise where they’ll donate 25% of each sale to their Building Happier Futures fund.

Go watch and make up your own mind! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Ž

Tugging our heartstrings since 2010!
