The Bear & The Hare

Going viral on YouTube today is a Christmas ad from Britain's John Lewis department store chain.
Watch the new John Lewis Christmas TV advert and see Hare give his best friend Bear a Christmas he'll never forget. Set in a beautiful forest, poor Bear is the only animal that never gets to celebrate Christmas because he has to hibernate every year. However, this year is different. This year Hare has a brilliant idea. The commercial uses a unique animation style that combines traditional 2D hand-drawn animation, stop frame, and 3D model made sets. The story is set to a cover of Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know' performed by Lily Allen.
It's my favorite Keane song and Lily Allen you might know from her gay rights anthem, Fuck You.
