Watch a Magically Charming Christmas Ad About a Boy and His Monster Directed by Michel Gondry


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!
