Plot / Description
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.
Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word
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.
