This Leaked John Lewis Xmas Advert Is The Darkest One Yet

They... killed Santa!!!

As the saying so nearly goes, John Lewis adverts come but once a year.

With the nights drawing in and your Vitamin D flowing out, us Brits come closer and closer to the most emotional moment of the year.

Yep, the most-seemingly pointless brand exercise since Emirates sponsored Arsenal (seriously, how many Gooners can actually afford a trip on their extortionate flying-pollution machines?), is nearly upon us, and symbiotic feeder brands are on tenterhooks to find out what their parody video fodder will be.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, and all of you in between, we can officially announce the theme of this year's JLXMASAD...

Santa is dead.

Okay, so the first thing to say is that it's fake as heck.

I mean obviously it's a piss take. If any of you thought it was real, you need to have a long, hard look at yourself in a mistletoe-strewn mirror.

The second thing to say is that it's ho ho ho hilarious!

In case you were wondering, comedy geniuses Casual Violence are behind the beautiful behind-the-scenes vid, and tbh folks, their other material is pretty LOLtastic too.
