Behind the scenes of John Lewis ‘The Boy and the Piano’

Waiting for the John Lewis TV advert to launch is a firm Christmas tradition and 2018 did not disappoint. With the tagline of ‘Some gifts are more than just a gift’, the ad follows the life of Sir Elton John, looking back at how receiving the gift of a piano as a small boy led him to be the superstar that he is today.

In this behind the scenes look we gain insight into how they recreated scenes from the epic stadium tours of the 70s and glittering costumes of the 80s, meet the actors who play Elton across the decades, and hear from the team who worked to bring this heart-warming story to life.
