Christmas 2019 Ad | John Lewis & Partners and Waitrose & Partners

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
  • Together with Waitrose & Partners, we’re excited to share the festive tale of a little girl and her excitable friend, Edgar. #ExcitableEdgar
    Our story this year is all about the magic of friendship and how one thoughtful gesture can make all the difference. Edgar’s excitement around the festive season can often lead to fiery consequences, but Ava sparks an idea for the perfect present to help him light up Christmas in his own special way 🔥

    Christmas, Dragons, and Bastille these three things should not mix and yet it totally does.

    John Lewis make huge profits and could easily afford the original artists song instead of the usual crappy cover versions they use every year

      It's a Christmas Pudding. The tradition, in the UK at least, is to douse it in spirits (usually brandy) and set fire to it, which stops when all the spirit is burned off.

      It's a Christmas pudding, you cover it in whiskey before serving and then set it alight

    This would make a great short story film if padded out little e.g. The Snowman. Edgar and his little friend are both very appealing

    How on earth can there be 5.4k dislikes.
    The mind boggles, I haven't taken much notice this year, but found it on here and it's wonderful.
    Well done John Lewis and partners, and all who participated in making it.
