Tenor Andrea Bocelli sings the original soundtrack as the ad follows the story of Snapper, the fast growing plant who wants to join in all the fun of Christmas.
After a tear jerking moment, where Snapper is cast out into the cold, he is embraced back into family and gives out presents as everyone gathers around their unconventional "tree".
The ad is a celebration of Christmas rituals and the joy of sharing them with loved-ones – with the strapline "Let Your Traditions Grow".
The adventures of Snapper continue in 7x 10” episodic product films with must-have gifts from Nespresso Coffee Machines and Jo Malone fragrances.
Snapper will be a part of the Christmas at Kew light trail.

The soundtrack will be released in longer form as a charity single with a proportion of the proceeds from the sale of the single going to the John Lewis Partnership’s Building Happier Futures charities, which help care experienced young people and families in need.
