John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018: A Tribute To Elton John

Featuring the singer's "Your Song", 2018's John Lewis Chrsitmas ad takes viewers through his glittering career, centring on Sir Reginald's greatest gift of all: his piano.

The two-minute film charts the life of the iconic pop star, using four actors to show key moments in his life, going right back to when he was given his first piano at Christmas.

"This year's story is about the power of a gift".

"The John Lewis Christmas campaign has so many warm memories for me and my family", John said of the commercial in a statement.

Instead, the ad reverses the order of events and comes to focus on the moment young Elton first sat down to play his grandmother's piano.

The advert's narrative is summed up at the end, with the slogan "Some gifts are more than just a gift".

The festive advert, which has become a Christmas custom in houses up and down the country, is due to premiere on TV on Thursday at 9.15pm.
