    Watch the new John Lewis & Partners Christmas TV advert, The Boy and The Piano.
    This year’s story is about the power of a gift. And how that gift inspired, changed and influenced the course of a little boy’s life. That little boy just happens to be Elton John. The film begins in present day and works backwards chronologically through Elton’s life right until the moment on Christmas morning when he received the special gift that changed his life.

Elton John is not a role model for anything. Inspirational British people include Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, The Duke of Wellington, Enoch Powell, Tolkein etc. Elton John is a court jester, a fat old poof who indulges in the kind of shirt lifting that was illegal within my lifetime. Some good music...but that's it. John Lewis should let me script their ad next year if they want something to stir the heart of this great nation

I try to write this post in English: as a simple pianist you do not know how much this video has excited me. When I was a child my parents (and brothers) gave me a piano. Of course, I will not become like Elton John but that gift made me become the person I am today. So yes, gifts can be much more than just gifts. Thanks John Lewis and thanks Elton John: probably you will never read this comment but I just wanted to thank you for the sweet memory you reminded me of

Aw i love this. The piano was the given gift to him from his mum but the real gift was the gift of music he has given back to her, and to each and every one of us. Sir Elton John - legend

John Lewis make a great debate lesson for my esl students about the commercialisation of Christmas, is it okay for a company to make the spirit of Christmas into something marketable? I'm not going to offer my opinion but my students have so much to say =D Thanks again John Lewis for a great discussion lesson.

Why on earth did they have to pick him, though?  This advert could have been done with anyone, but they probably paid an obscene amount of money to someone who doesn't need it.  I lost all respect for John Lewis after they decided to go gender neutral with kids clothes.

Dam, I understand the underlying message that a gift can be more than a gift and can take you through life and give you great happiness. But this one hasn’t touched me the same ways the other ones have this year 🤷🏻‍♀️

Awful advert. When it first came out I thought nothing but blatant advertising for Elton John, he must have an album coming out soon. But it's even worse. I was in the pictures this week and there was an ad for a new Elton John biopic movie. For f...s sake. Money, money, money is what this is all about. How can anyone actually believe it is about anything else.

Sister. Let`s make this Christmas good. I am  humbled  and thankful for what this nation has given to me. Let`s show others we are committed to helping this nation that has fallen on hard times. Let`s be the example of  true Americans who believe in Democracy and rights for all who cross our borders into our country. Let`s stand up for those with no voice or knowledge of how things work here. For those that are kept locked up in campsaway from family and pride. And for those who have died for the right for others  to seek freedom.

This ad I feel is just a bit bizarre, like I'm not an idiot and I understand the message (it's not that complicated for all you special snowflakes who have been calling people stupid if they don't like the ad) I just feel like it seems like a bit of a vanity project when compared to an add like man on the moon which felt like it had a more profound message to it. Also yes I like Elton John so I don't dislike it purely because he's in it.

I understand the advert, what I would like to know is, how much did they pay Elton John and did he donate any of it to charity? After all he doesn’t need the cash!
