John Lewis TV ad 2016 - Better Than Last Year

Last year I posted unfavourably about the 2015 John Lewis TV ad "Man on the Moon". I thought I'd just say that I much prefer the 2016 ad. They've pulled it back from the faux-Disney sap of 2013 and the saccharine absurdity from 2015. Putting aside badgers, foxes and squirrels trampolining together (yeah, that's right), I can at the very least believe that a derpy dog might see something fun and want in on the action. It's kind of what derpy dogs do.

Here is the ad in case you haven't seen it: Buster the Boxer.

Just to note, this still doesn't top The Journey's beautiful simplicity from 2012. That's a tall order right there. I still get a lumpy throat when I see that snowman battling the wind with such a determined face. Oh man.
