John Lewis Christmas advert ‘The Bear & The Hare’. It's a pains taking animation depicting a sad bear who always misses Christmas because he's hibernating. His friend the hare gives him a present – an alarm clock – that wakes him up just in time to see the big, decorated tree all lovely in the winter sunshine. Cute animals, big tree, snowy scene: it ticks all the boxes and yet it leaves me cold. Literally cold. It makes me wrap my cardigan tighter around me and turn up the thermostat.
