The John Lewis Christmas advert is finally here! Meet Buster the Boxer and his woodland friends

The wait is over, festive fans!

The John Lewis Christmas advert has finally been released – and here it is in all its glory!

The 2016 offering features Buster the Boxer dog – played by pooch Biff – who can’t wait to enjoy his young owner’s surprise Christmas present, a trampoline.

His excitement – and jealousy! – mounts on Christmas Eve, when Buster sees his furry friends having a right giggle on the trampoline in the moonlight.

Poor owner Bridget, Buster’s owner, doesn’t get a look in on Christmas morning as the Boxer races to enjoy the pressie himself – much to his delight!

The clip ends with John Lewis’ Christmas tag line ‘Gifts that everyone will love’.

As with previous years, the music is as much a part of the advert as the characters. This year, the advert features a cover of ‘One day I’ll fly away’ by London group Vaults.

John Lewis is partnering with The Wildlife Trusts this year, with a donation made to the charity for every soft toy that is sold from the Buster range.

Happy Christmas everyone!
