The 2019 John Lewis Commercial

Written by | December 11, 2019 7:42 am | No Comments


In my youth, there were two big stores in Manchester, Kendalls was older, Lewis’s more youth oriented (though Pat Caudwell got us kicked out when she sat on Santa’s knee -I bet Santa wasn’t that upset) multi story, two block running, center for all things Christmas…

In the following 40 odd years…  Lewis’s has grown and grown and every year they pull our hearts out with their UK commercial. My favorite is still the penguin one (here) from 2014 featuring Tom O’Dell’s gorgeous cover of the Beatles “Real Love”. 2019 is harmed by the dreadful Bastille song, but the storyline is as sweet as can be, just a wonderful dream of friendships and GoT during the dark ages…
