‘Love is a Gift’ is surprise Xmas winner from independent film maker Beastall

Adam&eveDDB’s John Lewis Christmas ad featuring Elton John has got the nation talking and it’s also inspired film maker Phil Beastall to release this, which certainly appears to have got the nation watching with nearly seven million views so far.

It’s a message from mum via that late lamented device the Sony Walkman.

Which should be what Christmas is about (death not compulsory.)

Here’s a round-up of more conventional Christmas offering, courtesy of XmasTvElf on YouTube.

Anything to compare with Beastall’s accomplished effort?

MAA creative scale: 9.
