The film, posted by the Scottish brewing giant, combines the new Buster the Boxer ad with a well known Scottish clip featuring a trampoline.

John Lewis released their upbeat Christmas ad this morning which features wild animals and a family dog having fun on a new trampoline.

The ad, named Buster The Boxer, was created by adam&eveDDB and directed by Dougal Wilson, who also helmed three previous John Lewis Christmas ads including 2011’s The Long Wait, 2012’s The Journey and 2014’s Monty’s Christmas.

John Lewis declined to put a price on the ad, saying only that its budget was similar to previous years, when it spent around £1 million on putting each campaign together and another £6 million on television slots.

Set to the cover of Randy Crawford’s 1980 jazz hit 'One Day I'll Fly Away' by English electronica band Vaults, the Tennent's version takes the lyrics a tad more literally than the original by introducing a guest appearance by Hurricane Bawbag - to hilarious effect.
