The commercial did not feature the hallmarks of later campaigns such as an emotional denouement or slowed-down cover version, instead using Prokofiev’s morning serenade from Romeo and Juliet. It features presents and products being carefully assembled positioned to eventually create a shadow image of a woman and a dog in the snow, in the style of artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster. 2 “Clues” Malcolm Venville December 2008 ( )

TBD TBA For a second year, Lowe and Partners were the agency behind the John Lewis Christmas ad, a montage of people of all ages and their ideal gifts with the tagline “If you know the person, you’ll find the present”. Directed by Malcolm Venville,[14] this was the first to feature the now-traditional cover version, with “From Me to You” by the Beatles recorded by unnamed employees of John Lewis. The full track was made available to download for free on the John Lewis website with an encouragement to donate to Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation. 3 “The Feeling” Benito Montorio[14] December 2009 ( ) TBD TBA The 2009 advertisement was the first for John Lewis by agency Adam & Eve (now part of DDB Worldwide), who went on to create the subsequent Christmas campaigns. Featuring a cover of the Guns N’ Roses song “Sweet Child o’ Mine” by Taken by Trees, the commercial features young children opening gifts usually given to adults such as a coffee machine and a laptop. With the tagline “Remember how Christmas used to feel”, the final scene shows a girl unwrapping a camera and becoming a woman. 4 “A Tribute to Givers” Eric Lynne[14] December 2010 ( ) TBD TBA Ellie Goulding’s cover of the Elton John song “Your Song” was the soundtrack to a collection of images showing people preparing gifts for their loved ones. Most notably, two parents attempt to secretly carry a rocking horse up some stairs whilst their children watch television. The advert concludes with a boy taking a stocking of presents outside to his pet dog in the snow, and hanging it on the kennel. This caused some controversy with animal rights protesters who complained that the animal was left outside in the cold whilst the boy waved goodbye and retreated to the house.[ citation needed] 5 “The Long Wait” Dougal Wilson[14] December 2011 ( ) TBD 8.23 Featuring The Smiths song “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want” sung by Slow Moving Millie, the 2011 advert, the first of many directed by Dougal Wilson, featured a little boy impatiently counting down the days to Christmas. On Christmas Eve, he wolfs down his dinner and goes to bed early in preparation for the next day. When he awakes on Christmas morning, the little boy jumps out of bed, runs straight past a large pile of presents at the bottom of his bed and heads for the wardrobe. He then wanders into his parents bedroom, waking them to give them the gift he wrapped himself and had been waiting to give them. 6 “The Journey” Dougal Wilson[14] December 2012 ( ) TBD 6.9 Using 20-year-old Gabrielle Aplin’s version of the Frankie Goes to Hollywood classic “The Power of Love”, the 2012 advert showed a snowman who traversed fields, a river, a mountain to obtain a perfect Christmas gift for Mrs. Snowman. The advert was very quickly followed up by a children’s picture book which was hastily written and published immediately after the advert’s first screening. The song was the first song from the John Lewis Christmas adverts to be a UK Singles Chart number one. 7 “The Bear and the Hare” Elliot Dear and Yves Geleyn[17] December 2013 ( ) TBD 17.2 8 “Monty the Penguin” Dougal Wilson[19] 7 November 2014 ( ) N/A

They added that “the heartwarming advert tells the tale of an unlikely friendship between a little boy Sam and his penguin friend Monty.”[1] British singer-songwriter Tom Odell recorded a cover for the advert of the 1977 John Lennon song “Real Love”, which was the last official song recorded by the Beatles after being released in 1996.[18] 9 “The Man on the Moon” Kim Gehrig[24] 6 November 2015 ( ) N/A 29.99 Featuring a cover of Oasis’ 1994 B-side “Half the World Away”, sung by Norwegian singer Aurora,[20] the 2015 campaign tells the story of a young girl trying to contact an old man spotted living alone on the Moon. Her attempts to catch the man’s attention fail until she sends him a special delivery of a telescope, via hot-air balloon, and the man finally gets to see Earth on Christmas night.[21] The strapline for the advert is “Show someone they’re loved this Christmas”, with the company teaming up with the charity Age UK.[22] The advert, the first of the brand’s Christmastime commercials that was directed by a woman – Kim Gehrig –, is estimated to have cost around £7 million.[23] 10 “Buster the Boxer” Dougal Wilson[29] 10 November 2016 ( ) N/A 27.9 The music for the 2016 campaign is a cover of Randy Crawford’s “One Day I’ll Fly Away”, performed by English electronica band Vaults.

As the animals play, Buster watches from the living room. On Christmas Day, the girl runs down the stairs and into the garden to find the trampoline, only for Buster to leap onto it and do some jumping himself.[26] It was reported that the advert cost £1 million to make, £6 million cheaper than last year’s advert.[27] A portion of the soft toy animals sales earnings were donated to The Wildlife Trusts.[28] 11 “Moz the Monster” Michel Gondry 10 November 2017 ( ) N/A 10.29 The Michel Gondry -helmed [ 30 ] attend features a binding of The Beatles ‘ “ Golden Slumbers “, performed by the set Elbow. It tells the report of a male child who is afraid of the dark, and a freak named Moz who lives under his seam. Scared of the dark, the male child looks under his bed one night to find that Moz is resting there. Although the child is at first scared, then irritated by the monster ‘s antics, the two very quickly become friends, although the son promptly begins to become bore in the day due to playing with Moz at night. That Christmas, the child finds a give under the tree that his family do n’t seem to recognise. Opening it, he finds a nightlight. When the nightlight is on, he ca n’t see his new supporter any more, but once he turns it off, he realises that Moz is calm there after all .
Following its premiere, author Chris Riddell accused John Lewis of plagiarizing elements of the advert from his 1986 children’s book Mr Underbed. Citing the similar themes of a child befriending a fluffy monster who lived under their bed, he stated that it was “very generous of John Lewis to devote their Christmas advertising campaign to my 1986 picture book… in this age of shrinking publicity budgets”. John Lewis defended the accusations, stating that the respective storylines of both works were “utterly different” (with the ad focusing primarily on the friendship between Moz and the child, and Mr Underbed having a child discover other creatures who lived in his room), and that monsters under the bed were a common concept that had been the subject of numerous works. The controversy heightened demand for the book, with copies of Mr Underbed quickly selling out from stores.[31][32] 12 “The Boy & The Piano[37]” Seb Edwards[38] 15 November 2018 ( ) N/A 6.65 Beginning with Elton John playing the first step notes of “ Your Song “, he then reminisces about his life and career in overrule, finally culminating with Christmas Day in the 1950s when he received a piano for Christmas from his mother .
As a teaser for the advert, ITV changed the theme tunes on several of its programmes to piano arrangements prior to its premiere, and some John Lewis & Partners stores hid the “Lewis” from their signage to leave only “John”.[33][34][35] In 2019, the commercial won the Visual Effects Society Award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial.[36] 13 “Excitable Edgar” Dougal Wilson[39] 14 November 2019 ( ) N/A TBA Edgar, a young dragon, is so excited about Christmas that he cannot control the flames from his mouth.
