Fake John Lewis Christmas advert goes viral ahead of Friday premiere

Tue, 08 Nov 2016
The much-anticipated John Lewis Christmas advert is widely expected to hit our TV screens this Friday, but one A-level student has already fooled millions with his brilliant video based on the company's adverts.

Nick Jablonka's festive creation was part of his A-level media course, titled "John Lewis Christmas Advert 2016". The incredible quality of his project - combined with the slightly misleading title - has helped Nick's short animation to go viral, as many believed it to be the real advert.

Uploaded back in June, the video follows a snowman as he longs to be reunited with his partner in time for Christmas, and it is approaching one million views on YouTube. What's more, Nick has been invited to spend some time behind the scenes with John Lewis, after his work left a great impression on them.

Each year, millions of people wait expectantly for the John Lewis advert, which typically premieres on a Friday in the first half of November.

It has been revealed today that Vaults are providing the music for this year's John Lewis advert. The British electronic trio are set to cover 'One Day I'll Fly Away', by Randy Crawford.

In addition to this, two teasers have indicated that Bounce, a boxer dog, could be the star of this year's advert. We're all very excited to see what the John Lewis 2016 Christmas advert has in store - keep your eyes peeled this Friday!
