Christmas is on its way which means that we get spoiled by amazing windows from luxury department- / concept stores like Harrods, Colette, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and heartwarming tv- commercials and adverts….
The John Lewis Christmas advert has become something of a cultural landmark over the last few years. This year JL opted for a nostalgic cartoon with animation reminiscent of Watership Down and The Animals of Farthing Wood. Telling the story of a hare who is bewildered by the hibernation of his best friend (the bear) in the run-up to Christmas, the advert revives the usual beautiful soundtrack with an uplifting rendition of Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know sung by Lily Allen.
The expression on the animals faces, landscape, the music…Goose bumps for sure! Also the making of is truly mind-blowing….Enjoy!
