They said in a tweet: "To reflect this year's John Lewis Christmas advert, The Boy and The Piano, which has its first TV broadcast on ITV this evening, the title music of some of our shows has been given a piano twist today".

John Lewis is not necessarily known for having an extensive musical instrument range but there are a number of them featured on the website.

The 29-year-old Chilean forward joined United in January and was announced to fans through a video of him playing Glory Glory Man United on the piano.

"The ad is absolutely fantastic and I've truly loved every minute of being a part of it".

Some even claimed the advert was a thinly veiled promotion for upcoming biopic Rocketman, featuring Taron Egerton as Sir Elton.

Given the warm ties and progress, Seoul is best placed to mediate between the North and U.S. , but Beijing also has a role. From journalists to missionaries, most Americans held by North Korea have been released after high-profile interventions.

The gauntlet has been thrown down, rival companies wanting to make a touching Christmas advert. "Wait, what? If it was "Step in to Christmas", you could get away with it".

The film, which launched in the United Kingdom today, starts out with a somewhat pensive, present day Elton John tapping a few notes on his piano. But come on. Really?

"The speculation in recent months around the costs associated with this year's ad is wildly inaccurate and our total spend is similar to previous years", the press release stated.

So this holiday season, remember that sometimes the gifts you give can impact someone's life as a whole in ways you may not expect. "Piano = a career in music, I bought my daughter's first leotard at the age of 4 she is now 8 and her passion is gymnastics". What is the most memorable gift you've received?
