    Buster the Boxer

    John Lewis decided to mix it up with Buster The Boxer in 2016 by having a funny advert rather than a gut-wrenching sentimental one.

    It told the tale of a dog who was desperate to bounce on his family's trampoline.

    He had to watch foxes, a badger and a hedgehog have fun while his family were asleep.

    Then as the little girl runs towards her gift on Christmas Day, Buster gets to it first and starts bouncing. The funny ad ended with "Gifts that everyone will love" and Vaults provided the backing track with a cover of Randy Crawford's One Day I'll Fly Away.

    Fans loved it, but some people were left a bit disappointed as they didn't feel like it packed as much of an emotional punch as in previous years.

    What was last years advert?

    John Lewis' 2021 advert was released earlier than ever, on November 5, much to the delight of the store's fans, and John Lewis said it wanted to reflect how shoppers were buying Christmas items earlier than usual.

    In its 2021 Christmas ad called The Unexpected Guest, a teenage boy called Nathan meets an alien named Skye who has crash landed on earth.

    Through friendship Nathan shows Skye a series of festive family traditions.

    They decorate a tree, eat mince pies, throw snowballs, and watch a Christmas movie.

    But the advert has a bittersweet ending, as Skye has fixed her ship and must return home.

    In a tear-jerking moment, Nathan gifts Skye his Christmas jumper – the same one he was wearing the day they met.

    The soundtrack is performed by Lola Young, a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from South London, with a version of "Together in Electric Dreams".

    The ten-second teaser, which was shared on Twitter, shows a man wheeling a Christmas tree along a street using a skateboard.

    Fans responded to the teaser and shared their excitement ahead of its release.

    One Twitter user said: "It's nearly time for Christmas to begin."
