Could This Be the Cutest Ad of the Season? [VIDEO]

Nov 16, 2014

This charming ad has it all - comedy, romance, a moral lesson, good music and holiday cheer. The sweet advertisement for UK-based department store John Lewis tells the story of a little boy called Sam and his very best friend, Monty the Penguin. It follows the two in their day-to-day life, as Sam starts to work out exactly what his feathered friend wants for Christmas. He makes sure to get it ready and wrapped to make Monty’s day - and that he does. Without spoiling anything, it’s super cute.
The clip joins a trend of advertisements with a positive message. On top of ushering in the holiday season with a smile, the ad encourages the true gift of giving - really thinking about what the special people around us would like to receive.
And the music? It’s a Beatles cover, naturally.
