John Lewis Commercial
Dates: December 2009 - April 2010
This Television Commercial plays Sweet Child o' Mine
"Christmas 2009" This Christmas / Holiday commercial for John Lewis shows children opening up gifts that you normally wouldn't think a child would like, but they are all extremely happy to get them. This commercial captures the feeling you used to get as a kid, but relates it to adult gifts. First we see a little girl getting a large necklace followed by a little boy getting a pair of slippers. Next, two children are shown opening up a new coffeemaker, a boy gets a laptop, and a young girl gets a purse that is way too big for her to carry. Another girl is shown reading an eBook in bed, and a group of kids open up a dinnerware set, while another little girl is quite happy with a new umbrella. (Lyrics) She's got a smile that it seems to me Reminds me of childhood memories When everything was as bright the bluest sky Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place Where as a child I'd hide And pray for the thunder and the rain To quietly pass me by Oh, oh, oh Sweet child o' mine Oh, oh, oh, oh Sweet child of mine Remember how Christmas used to feel? Give someone that feeling.
