John Lewis pays homage to E.T the Extra Terrestrial with their new Christmas ad

Christmas

John Lewis, a brand of high-end department stores operating throughout Great Britain, has released its highly-anticipated Christmas ad for 2021.

Their ads are always world-class and adored by millions around the world - and this years ad may just be the best one yet.

The ad titled 'Unexpected Guest' pays homage to E.T The Extra Terrestrial and stars an alien called Skye.

In the 2 minute ad a 14-year-old boy who spots Skye crash-landing in the woods, introduces her to the joys of Christmas, from decorating a tree to eating mince pies, and gives her a jumper that twinkles with LED lights as a parting gift.

Watch it above.
