British department store John Lewis is known for their wonderfully creative and heartwarming annual holiday adverts and the 2018 version is certainly no exception. This touching scene features Sir Elton John at his piano playing his 1970 hit “Your Song” while mentally traveling backwards through time. He lands in different stages of his life until he reaches that fateful Christmas morning when his smiling mother presented him with his very first piano, thereby changing his life forever.
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.
