What’s Your Favourite John Lewis Advert of All Time?

John Lewis always seem to nail it with their Christmas adverts, but it looks like this year’s John Lewis Christmas TV advert, and more specifically, Monty the penguin, has been a huge hit with adults and children alike. People have gone wild for the new Christmas ad, a point proven by the fact that the fluffy Monty the penguin toys, available for £95 from John Lewis online, sold out in a matter of hours. Already, Monty boasts a huge following on Twitter, where he receives a wealth of dating advice to help him woo his new love interest, Mabel.

But the advert isn’t just the story of an adorable, fun-loving penguin finally finding someone to love – oh no. The advert is also helping WWF to raise awareness and deliver support to the species, with all profits from the advert’s soundtrack, Real Love, by Tom Odell, going to the Adopt a Penguin Programme. It’s little wonder that the ad has already won John Lewis a Compassionate Marketing Award.
