John Lewis Christmas TV Advert


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

As you well know, I am an absolute fiend for festivities and one of the highlights of the Christmas season is seeing the John Lewis advert come on TV each year. That snowman one in 2012? Yeah, I cried. Don't judge me.

I have just found the 2013 one on YouTube and HAD to share. 


If you do go and watch the video, comment on it with, 'Sprinkle of Glitter sent me' so I can see you!

For me, it's Christmas when the TV ads start rolling. What's your, 'it's Christmas when' moment?

Toodlepip!

  2. Hi I tired to post a comment on here but got an error on here - so sorry if this is a double post.

    I work for John Lewis, there was a big excitement showing the new xmas advert, our store FB page went mental off people posting. I think it cute but not a tear jerker - i prefer the snowman one. xx

  7. I know it's nearly Christmas when I see the coca cola father Christmas lorry adverts!

  8. I love it! My bff worked at John Lewis for a little while and I never knew until her that their xmas advertisement was a big deal. This hits right in the feels!

  9. It's Christmas when I see the streets fill with Christmas lights and decorations!! Unfortunately, we don't get any seasons where I'm living at the moment, so the lights and decorations are my sign that Christmas is definitely here! (plus, we have some of the most beautiful in the world so that kind of makes up for it, check it out: http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/top-10/holiday-lights-photos/#/05-light-displays-colombia_41299_600x450.jpg

  11. I always love the John Lewis Christmas ads. Last year, I had to study the John Lewis ad for my Media Studies A-Level and even though I must have watched it around 30+ times, I never got sick of it. It's Christmas ads that make me feel Christmas-y too but the Coca Cola Christmas ads are what really make it feel like Christmas for me!

  13. My 'its Christmas when' moment is when you walk into the stores and their Christmas merchandise is set up. Doesn't it feel like Christmas?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Christmas for me starts when I see that glorious coca cola lorry! Or when someone says to me 'are you not being an elf this year?' but thats another story....

  21. How do they make such perfect Christmas ads every year? This is so cute!
    My "It's christmas when" moments would definitely have to be the first showings of the Coca-cola and John Lewis adverts, the country-tour of the coca-cola van, and the first Christmas card through the letterbox- they all bring that warm fuzzy Christmas feeling with them!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Omg wow! I always love the Christmas John Lewis adverts too! in fact I love most Christmas adverts! Thanks for letting me know about the new one for this year!:') x

  23. This is such a lovely concept and the animation is great! My 'it's Christmas when' moment has got to be when Starbucks bring out their red cups! I absolutely love the Christmas drinks they do :)

  51. I absolutely love all the John Lewis adverts, Christmas can't begin until I see that one and the Coca Cola one! My Christmas definitely begins when I see all the lights go up everywhere and when you can go into Starbucks and get the Christmas flavours and cups, I always have to stop on my Christmas shopping trips to get a Starbucks Christmassy treat :-)

  69. That commercial is spectacular! We don't really have companies going all out for Christmas here, such a shame now that I've seen that!

    My moment is when the lights start going up in the street (which is usually pretty late here) and everything just instantly looks 10 times cosier!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Brilliant. Got to love JL Christmas ads. My favourite was the little boy who couldn't wait to give his mam and dad their gift, he reminded me of my son (and not just because they had the same pj's) the accompanying music is always so heartwarming too. Thanks for posting.

  73. I'm terrible with my 'it's Christmas when' moment. Mines is when the Christmas drinks are back in Starbucks, so really it's Christmas now. But I also consider it Christmas when the Irn Bru advert is on TV. Most people say it about the Coca Cola advert, but for me and my Mum especially, it's the Irn Bru advert.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm like you Louise. I know it's Christmas when the christmas ads begin but there's only one ad that does that for me and it's the Coco Cola Truck christmas ad:) xxx Holidays are coming, holidays are coming!

  89. this came up as a advert before watching on of youtube videos, it did have a "skip ad" button but I just couldn't click it, I HAD to watch it to the end. cutest ad ever <3

    ReplyDelete
  90. How on earth did I just cry to that. I'm such a wally.

    I used to live in Japan, and it meant that I didn't have Christmas for a few years since they don't really do it over there. It was my lowest time ever each year, but I live in Germany now and everything is SO VERY CHRISTMAS so I guess it makes up for it!

  99. i'm already in such christmas spirit since mid october. i think it started off with tea. i bought winter tea in october . then came the mandarins, bought myself a christmas calendar already, went to london this weekend shopping, bought christmas socks and gloves from primark. but usually the christmas moment is when snow comes (i live in estonia, where we get a lot of snow during winter)
    i'm actually studying abroad and flying home 23december evening, so i think christmas this year will be more meaningful and amazing than any other past years. i look forward to spending time with my family and friends more than usual. i think that's why i got the spirit so early this year. :)

  100. In New Zealand we have an advert that comes on each year and when I see it I know it is Christmas time. The advert is for Beaurepairs which is a company that sells car tires. The guy comes on all rugged up in a jacket and scarf and sings Winter Wonderland in the snow with birds around him. Thing is, it is summer here now and boiling hot which makes it a funny advert but boy that man can sing! It hasn't come on yet so technically it's not Christmas time ;)

  104. since I live in the states, I'm supposed to say after Thanksgiving, but honestly it's when the stores get all the Christmasy smelling things in. Right now my entire house smells of Cinnamon and I'm heartbroken there's no snow out my window. So ready for Chirstmas planning and shopping and wrapping.

  115. These JL holiday commercials are always so emotional.. since the 2010 commercial where Ellie G. sang.. I haven't missed one. They are so sweet & put you in the holiday spirit. I live in the US.. & I believe the closest thing we have to an emotional start of the season kind of commercial are the Coca Cola one's.. with all the cute little polar bears. Merry almost Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  116. It's good, but not as good as last years, that was just perfection :) My 'it's christmas' moment, used to be when I saw the coca-cola advert, but I always feel more christmassy when it starts to get colder and we get frosty mornings and such :)

  125. I love this advert. I had to make my mum pause the TV and search it on YouTube. It's the one Christmas advert that gets better every year. My 'it's Christmas when' moment is definitely when I hear my boyfriend and his family get VERY excited over the Coca Cola advert. I don't even have to be in the room to know that its on. You have to love how happy Christmas makes people :)
