Watch John Lewis' new Christmas ad, featuring Moz the Monster

Around twelve months ago the world fell totally in love with Buster the Boxer and honestly, we didn't know if John Lewis could ever top him.

The John Lewis advert shows Moz The Monster and a little boy named Joe, who is struggling to sleep because of the creature living under his bed.

Is monster Moz as good as Monty the Penguin?

At the start of the advert, Moz can be seen hiding under Joe's bed.

The two form a friendship and play together every evening.

John Lewis spared no expense with this advert, reportedly spending a budget of seven million to make the ideal visuals. If you're also a fan, it's no surprise that John Lewis are stocking cuddly toy versions of the friendly fellow to own at home alongside other merchandise including pyjamas and a mug.

The store even pushed the boat out for the backing track.

Over the years, the ads have become as famous for their soundtracks as they have for their storylines, and this year's clip is accompanied by an Elbow cover of The Beatles" "Golden Slumbers'.

Earlier this week, Twitter went into meltdown after discovering what they think could be the new John Lewis Christmas advert. But luckily the slip-up didn't ruin too much as the advert still has over a million views on YouTube alone, with many viewers calling it the best festive advert yet.

Michel Gondry added: "When I told my ex-girlfriend I was doing the next John Lewis Christmas film, she said, 'You have big shoes to fill, this John Lewis commercial must make people cry, don't forget.' Last week I showed it to her and she cried".
