John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018 Starring Elton John

John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018 Starring Elton John

While it is true acoustic pianos are not available, a search on the John Lewis website shows that they do now sell a number of electrical pianos and keyboards, accompanied with the words: "Inspired by our Christmas advert". So will the retailer be selling pianos this Christmas?

But look a little deeper, and this year's story is all about music lessons.

Elton John's "Your Song" is the soundtrack of the 2018 advert.

"The ad is absolutely fantastic and I've truly loved every minute of being a part of it".

The firm said reports Sir Elton had been paid £5m were "wildly inaccurate" and said some of his fee went to his charitable trust.

"Think back to all of the Christmases that you have enjoyed over the years - I'm sure there is one very special gift that stands out above all others".

Does Sinema Win Point to a Democratic Arizona?
McSally's campaign and state-level GOP officials ignored national Republicans' tactics of casting doubt on the election's results. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections.

Beyond the via, John Lewis says this will be its "most ambitious" experiential Christmas campaign to-date, with customers able to experience the ad themselves in its Oxford Street store.

John Lewis is not necessarily known for having an extensive musical instrument range but there are a number of them featured on the website.

Here is the hotly-anticipated John Lewis Christmas advert, starring Elton John.

Last year's John Lewis Christmas ad focused on the tale of Moz the Monster who lived under the bed of seven-year-old boy Joe.

Hudson Trindall, a pupil at Regency Performing Arts in Margate, plays a young Elton John in the commercial, which was released today and shows different actors taking on the legendary musician through the years, including an appearance from Elton himself for the present-day scenes.

It's got all it all hasn't it? The young Elton has learned a skill that will stay with him for life.
