Director Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind, Eternal Sunshine For The Spotless Mind) helmed this absolutely charming Christmas commercial called Moz The Monster for the U.K.-based department store John Lewis. The ad certainly captures the magic of the holiday season.
The story follows a young boy named Joe who ends up befriending a monster who lives under his bed. Here's the description that was released for it:
Joe befriends a noisy Monster under his bed but the two have so much fun together that he can't get to sleep, leaving him tired by day. For Christmas Joe receives a gift to help him finally get a good night’s sleep.
The ad has a little mix of Monster's Inc., Little Monsters, and Where the Wild Things Are in it. It may tell a sweet story, but I won't lie... it's kinda sad as well. You'll see why when you watch the video. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!
