John Lewis Christmas Ad

What better way to announce Ad-miration's arrival back into the blogosphere *shudders* than to write about Adam and Eve's long-awaited follow up to the John Lewis Christmas advert?

This advert is just pure magical. It's a tear-jerking, emotional roller coaster and I know there are thousands of people who have shed a tear to this ad. And it's such an original concept to have a child eagerly awaiting Christmas morning not because he wants to receive gifts, but because he cannot wait to give his gift to his parents. It's a novel, sentimental and unbelievably charming spot and it's hard not to smile and be affected by this.

The final line of, "For gifts you can't wait to give" is beautiful and rounds of this ad perfectly.

This ad uses a cover of The Smiths' "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want", cost over £5m to produce, and has already trended worldwide on Twitter, been viewed almost 1.5 million times on YouTube, and is already being talked about as one of the best Christmas adverts of all time.

Kudos to Adam and Eve who have created a Christmas phenomenon. If they continue causing the public to eagerly anticipate these ads year after year, I see them going down in history as one of the very best.

What Coca-Cola advert?
