Plot / Description

"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.

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
