The John Lewis Christmas ad has destroyed me. The tears were pouring down my face. Oh God. I don't know whether to be embarrassed or watch it again so I can have another cry....

Edit from MNHQ: Sorry for butting in squiggleirl - but we're just going to add a link to to the video here so everyone can sob uncontrollably enjoy it Apologies for the intrusion!

Damn you John Lewis!

I knew what this would be about before I opened the thread!

Also had a jolly good cry too. At least the music isn't as ear wormy this year. Every time I went into JL last Christmas I was a blubbery mess! grinsmile

Fuck knows how they do it, they make me cry every single year.

MackerelOfFact Thu 06-Nov-14 09:37:20

Aww. Every year! John Lewis must employ some total softies complete sadists to do their advertising.

Blithereens Thu 06-Nov-14 09:40:35

I don't get it- was the penguin always a toy?

Left me totally unmoved and I cried at the advert last year where they sang 'all the little things' (aldi?) so I am a regular Christmas ad crier, I think they have missed this year.

Thought it was total rubbish. Until the end. Blubbering now.

RunDougalRunQuiteFast Thu 06-Nov-14 09:51:12

Blub! Very sweet!

MistyMistletoe Thu 06-Nov-14 09:51:43

Another one here blubbing like a bambino. I got the message from the off.

RunDougalRunQuiteFast Thu 06-Nov-14 09:52:15

But I did have a moment of thinking 'surely you can't buy a real penguin at JL.'!

catsoup Thu 06-Nov-14 09:57:39

Loved it! By far their best yet and now i have to go work a complete mess smile

newpencilcase Thu 06-Nov-14 09:59:37

I'm really cross.

My son is renowned for his imaginary penguin friend. It's the thing that makes him special. Now every fucker is going to pretend they've got one.

been around for years ink{\]]/}

I feel sullied, like when that X Factor woman recorded Hallelujah, or Smelly Cat got turned into a cat food advert.

fuzzpig Thu 06-Nov-14 10:00:02

Yep me too <wipes eyes>

I was snivelling enough when the penguin was real - the reveal tipped me over the edge though!

newpencilcase Thu 06-Nov-14 10:00:13

I'm so cross I can't even do links properly

here it is
