The John Lewis Christmas Commercial Is Here

  • Posted 43 months Ago

John Lewis commercials have a knack for pulling on the heartstrings, and they've done it again with their 2014 Christmas commercial entitled "Monty's Penguin". The spot, conceived by advertising agency Adam&Eve/DDB, follows a young boy and his penguin friend in the lead up to Christmas Day to evoke "the magic of make-believe at Christmas through a child's eyes." In follow up to Lily Allen's cover of "Somewhere Only We Know" for the commercial last year, Chichester-based Tom Odell has reworked John Lennon's little-known song "Real Love" to provide the soundtrack.

The ad forms part of John Lewis's 7m Christmas campaign and will debut on TV this Friday during the first ad break for Channel 4's Gogglebox.
