Twitter Reacts To The John Lewis Christmas Ad


Share this article


There's been a mixed reaction to the John Lewis Christmas Ad. Elton John is the star this year (you can watch it HERE).

The singer's famous hit 'Your Song' provides the soundtrack for the ad, which is called 'The Boy and the Piano'.

It looks back on his life and career, while also representing the moment he got his first piano for Christmas as a child.

As always, some people HATE it and some people LOVE it. Here's some of the best reactions.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">MAYBE, just maybe, in the spirit of Christmas, we look past the fact John Lewis don&#39;t sell pianos and enjoy the sentiment of the advert, which is, Elton John is Benjamin Button. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/EltonJohnLewis?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#EltonJohnLewis</a></p>&mdash; Daisy (@DaisyKirkwood14) <a href="https://twitter.com/DaisyKirkwood14/status/1062976635090165760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 15, 2018</a></blockquote>
