John Lewis & Partners Christmas Ad 2018 - #EltonJohnLewis 🎹

  • Published on Nov 15, 2018
  • Watch the new John Lewis & Partners Christmas TV advert, The Boy and The Piano.
    This year’s story is about the power of a gift. And how that gift inspired, changed and influenced the course of a little boy’s life. That little boy just happens to be Elton John. The film begins in present day and works backwards chronologically through Elton’s life right until the moment on Christmas morning when he received the special gift that changed his life.

    its a shame the new Elton John Biopic won't have as much integrity as this. Including actually having Elton's voice on the recording. this two minute ad will be better than the film.

      Really ? Oh that's so cool...Good that it's being done when he's still alive to see it...Every other movie about iconic artists has been made post mortem, when they will never know 😞

    To Those Who DONT KNOW.....This Song IS ABOUT GIVING!!! It Is Said That The SONG Was Written For Eltons Grandmother Who Was His Inspiration. Chances Are SHE Gave Him A Piano!!!

    How wonderful life is, while he’s in the world. I just saw him. He is still so grateful. Many children sit with talent, but no support. He knows it is the support that helped him become the legend that he is.

    I remember when I was 20 my grandmom gave me a red ten speed bike. I still have that bike and I hate to part with it. On that bike was a red ribbon and a tag that said, "To Ted, Love Grandmom, The greatest grandmom a kid could ever have."

      Spect Ator I have high hopes in Rocketman, cause if they’re are going to tell Elton’s Story through his fantasy, it could be one of the most intelligent storytelling in 2019
