John Lewis The Man Got A Really Nice Message From John Lewis The Shop This Year

The poor guy.

Posted on

For years and years now, people on Twitter have confused a man from Virginia called John Lewis with the British department store John Lewis.

Via Twitter

Every year, John Lewis (the store) does an incredible heartwarming Christmas advert that makes all of Britain seriously emotional, and every year people struggle to tell the two John Lewises apart. Here's what happened last year:

Here's this year's John Lewis advert:

People are a bit more divided this time around because the advert is not sad enough and nor is the monster is scary enough. And John Lewis (the man) agrees.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is scarier than the monster under my bed.

Though he does like the advert.

I say this is one of your best! It brightened my day (which I needed, ironically, thanks to you). https://t.co/gm4RvwWHAp

As the compliments for the ad pour in, Lewis usually thanks everyone kindly and patiently. Here's what happened last year:

Anyways, the mix-up tradition has happened again...

Sorry @johnlewis #MozTheMonster is ..... Not feeling the Christmas glow

...as people thanked John Lewis (the man) for the ad...

@johnlewis always hits me in right in the feels with their Christmas adverts

...and he had to fend off the internet once more.

@johnlewis absolutely loved this years ad 💗 well done #beautiful 🎄

Maybe Lewis has started to have had enough.

Well, if so, hopefully this has brightened his day a bit.
