Advent calendars may have been out since Easter and shops may have been putting baubles on display since September – but you know it's really Christmas when the John Lewis Christmas advert arrives.
This year's offering takes a funny, rather than schmaltzy, approach (cf. last year's sugary sweet Man on the Moon ad) – featuring a sad boxer dog who just wants to bounce.
As is traditional, the soundtrack is a cover – this time of Randy Crawford's classic One Day I'll Fly Away, by Vaults.
It features a little girl, Bridget, and a cast of wild animals including foxes, badgers, hedgehogs and squirrels – all of whom have names like Otto and Olivia, obvs.
