Here’s The First Great Christmas Ad Of 2018, And It’s Going To Be A Tough One To Beat

Holiday commercials have begun, and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet. Now some would say that it’s too early for this, but I have to disagree. Some of the commercials can be a bit much, but every once in a while you get one that touches you right in the feels.

Right now Elton John is crossing all over the globe for his farewell tour. At the age of 71 he has decided to retire.

With his retirement coming, what better way to show it, then a two minute Christmas ad showing a flashback of his life. Who better to do it than John Lewis’ and his memorable Christmas ads, which have become holiday tradition U.K.

For this commercial you see Elton John sitting down at his piano as he begins to play and sing. All the sudden it starts to show flashbacks of his past. We get to see in bits and pieces how his hit “Your Song” has gone from the first perfornace to the current day performances. The song was first recorded back in 1970.

They recreated John’s iconic performance at Dodger Stadium and other aspects of his life by using CGI versions of John. Talk about how far technology has truly come.

I am sure by now you are wondering what any of this has to do with Christmas, but like any great story, you have to watch to the end to get to the true meaning of it.

Check out the commercial below, and see for yourself why this is likely to be the most heartwarming Christmas commercial of 2018.
