The new John Lewis 2012 Christmas ad entitled "The Journey" is simply a joy to watch. The commercial opens in a family's snow-covered garden, with children making a snowman and snowwoman, the snowman has mysteriously disappears the next morning. We are then transported to a magical world, following the determined snowman on an epic journey across river, mountain, road and city. The motive for the snowman's journey isn't revealed until the last scene, when we see him return on Christmas morning.
