John Lewis Christmas Advert 2016: #BusterTheBoxer Clip Features Vaults Cover Of ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’

This year’s John Lewis Christmas ad has finally been unveiled - and not a moment too soon.

After last year’s tear-jerking Man On The Moon clip, this year’s ad is a whole lot more uplifting - literally - and features a very cute pooch in the form of Buster the Boxer.

Set to a soundtrack of the classic Randy Crawford hit ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’, which has been given a new twist by London-based electronica trio Vaults, the story centres around a little girl called Bridget who loves jumping.

Her gift this year is a trampoline, which has been left in the garden as a surprise on Christmas Eve.

It’s then that Buster witnesses a whole host of (computer generated) animals enjoying a bounce on the trampoline ahead of Christmas Day.

Well we did say it was uplifting.

The £1m ad officially kick starts the retailer’s Christmas campaign, which the department store will be spending £6m on in total.

Watch the ad in the clip above.
