The John Lewis 2017 Christmas ad #MozTheMonster

This time the story focuses on Joe, a little boy who is kept awake at night by the monster hiding under his bed.

Moz and Joe strike up a friendship based on a mutual love of late-night Scalextric and piggyback games, but staying awake starts to take its toll on the boy and Moz realises he must allow him some peace and quiet.

The best Christmas adverts for 2017 Tue, November 7, 2017 Christmas Adverts: M&S and SkyCinema have unveiled their 2017 Christmas adverts and they are sure to bring a tear to the eye.

The John Lewis Christmas advert has landed - and they're pulling out all the stops with an Oscar-winning director, a Beatles tune and a lovable furry monster.

The store's Christmas advert for the current festive season is the cutest thing we've ever seen, featuring a monster that we all now want to find sleeping under our beds. Sounds like a standard Xmas.

Is monster Moz as good as Monty the Penguin?

For Christmas, Joe receives the ideal gift of a night light which helps him finally get some peace and quiet from Moz, and a good night's kip.

The department store drafted in Oscar-winning film director Michael Gondry to work on the two-minute ad, which sees John Lewis return to its tear-jerking formula after a more humorous turn previous year by Buster the bouncing Boxer dog. He has also directed legendary music videos for Bjork, Daft Punk, the White Stripes and the Rolling Stones.

The clip will receive its first airing on Channel 4 tonight (Friday 10 November) at 9pm, with a simulcast taking place on all of Sky's own channels. Last week I showed it to her and she cried.

The much anticipated John Lewis Christmas ad has been released.
