The John Lewis Christmas Adverts are always great.
I have no idea how effective they are in delivering hordes of Christmas shoppers through the doors of the John Lewis retail emporium, but as commercial works of art they are great.
I know Christmas shouldn’t be about spending more than you can afford and then end up living off tins of value range food for the whole of January, but if you are going to be persuaded to blow all the cash you have at the very least you’d want that persuasion to be done tastefully, John Lewis style.
There have been many good ones over the years, with brilliant sound tracks, but my favourite is the 2011 advert. What’s yours?
