John Lewis Christmas Advert 2014 – My thoughts

John Lewis Christmas advert

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I eagerly await the John Lewis Christmas advert every year and here it is!

I like it.

I don’t love it like I did with the 2011 ad. That’s the one where the little boy can’t wait for Christmas, but not for the reason you expect! The snowman ad from 2012 was great. Last year’s Hare and Bear was one of my favourites. This year’s is lovely and made me smile at the end, which is what I’ve come to expect from John Lewis Christmas adverts but it’s not as special as the others 🙂

I just hope the girls don’t want real penguins for pets after seeing it!

    The advert cost £1 million to shoot, it is a nice but this money could be put into much better use
