Advert: John Lewis – The Bear & The Hare Christmas 2013
Music: Lily Allen – Somewhere Only We Know
The latest of the big-hitter Christmas 2013 TV adverts arrives, and it’s arguably the most-anticipated ad of the year. John Lewis presents a beautifully animated festive tale – The Bear & The Hare. The Bear doesn’t usually get to celebrate Christmas because he has to hibernate. However, this year will be different thanks to a clever gift from the Hare. The ad combines hand-drawn and stop-frame animation and was created by some of the artists behind The Lion King. The soundtrack is a cover of Keane’s 2004 hit Somewhere Only We Know, specially recorded for the ad by Lily Allen. Lily’s version has been released as a single. You can download it from iTunes.
