This morning Twitter erupted in tears with this year’s John Lewis Christmas ad:

Doing a little research, I see that last year’s was uploaded to YouTube on Nov 11, 2010. 2009′s on Nov 16, but close enough. And so on. And all of them feature a female cover of a famous rock ‘n roll song, and they’re all really well done, and guaranteed to put you in tears, and so much better than walking into a Jamba Juice on the day after Halloween with the Halloween window paintings still up to hear bad pop renditions of Christmas carols, no?
