British animator October Jones releases ridiculous John Lewis parody


John Lewis Christmas parody

The new John Lewis Christmas ad has fallen victim to parody after being re-released by British animator aka 'October Jones'.

In this video, the John Lewis message is not one of fantasy, childhood dreams and happiness but instead, a sinister, dark portrayal of their real intentions, to sell basically anything they can.

Featuring a flying green goblin and an animated bear transformed into a rug, the video destroys the precious image of wild life animals and shows how John Lewis' products burn and damage them. On top of that, they self-inflict the wounds and right at the end, to cap it all off, a beaver points what looks like a magnum .44 to his temple.
