The Actual John Lewis Has His Own Christmas Ad
This year, the real-life John Lewis is the star of his own Christmas ad.
Twitter’s Christmas ad features him replying to everyone on the social media platform from the comfort of his home in Virginia:
The owner of the Twitter handle @johnlewis is known for being inundated with notifications every Christmas when the retailer's Christmas ad comes out.
The father of four from Virginia in the States works in computer science and just so happens to have a username similar to the retail giant.
I'd say "you're welcome," but I think that might be the wrong answer. @johnlewisretail https://t.co/L1ZoeQJmJn— John Lewis (@johnlewis) September 4, 2018
John's a good sport and is known for his witty replies back to people on Twitter:
Could you spare a bourbon on the rocks, instead? https://t.co/tgGPhsyesp— John Lewis (@johnlewis) November 15, 2018
It's not all bad though. John now has his own Christmas ad and gets decent gifts from John Lewis every festive season:
Received a huge package from @johnlewisretail including this amazing embroidered cushion. So cool! Thank you very much! pic.twitter.com/cIMAvPol5D— John Lewis (@johnlewis) November 15, 2016
