JOHN LEWISJohn Lewis Christmas 2017 advert John Lewis has teased that the ad is coming soon

This time the story focuses on Joe, a little boy who is kept awake at night by the monster hiding under his bed.

Over the years, the ads have become as famous for their soundtracks as they have for their storylines, and this year's clip is accompanied by an Elbow cover of The Beatles" "Golden Slumbers'.

Earlier this week, Twitter went into meltdown after discovering what they think could be the new John Lewis Christmas advert. "So ready to cry", said one.

It's all rather academic as these ads have become a United Kingdom institution and, once again, adam&eveDDB delivers for John Lewis.

It was also directed by French filmmaker Michel Gondry, whose previous credits include "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind".

Remind yourself of last year's Christmas advert from John Lewis.

The ad has again been the subject of intense speculation about its content, with the store stoking the excitement by releasing short previews on social media under the hashtag UnderTheBed.
