These 25 memes about the John Lewis Christmas ad are better than the ad itself
How can one advert divide the nation SO much?!
Every single year John Lewis drops its Christmas advert and everyone goes wild. The pure amount of John Lewis Christmas advert memes that are floating around prove this year is no different.
This year’s ad is all about Excitable Edgar the dragon and his companion Ava. Edgar goes around accidentally setting fire to the entire village with his dragon powers and soon he’s upset most of the villagers. He goes into hiding before Ava buys him a gift and takes him to a big Christmas dinner. Edgar puts his fiery skills to good use and lights the Christmas pudding. Everyone loves him again – it’s really cute.
But as per, some people love the John Lewis & Partners Christmas advert 2019 and some hate it. There are tweets about how it has left people “crying at 7am” and “is adorable” whereas others say the advert is “past its prime” and Edgar the dragon deserves to be “in prison”.
One thing everyone can agree on is that the John Lewis Christmas advert memes are funny af. Here are the 25 best:

4. I think you’re thinking too deeply into this one
Re: #JohnLewisXmasAd – how is that dragon thing able to control his fire at the end when he couldn't earlier? And why hasn't he burned his own house down by now? He's just an arsonist who should be in prison…

10. Man On The Moon will never be beaten
Yo, remember when the John Lewis advert was a lonely old man living on the moon so a kid sent him a telescope so he can be a lonely old man living on the moon watching everyone having a good time without him.

11. It’s the most WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR !!!

12. Let it all out x
13. This is not very festive
I may be alone in this but I feel like the #johnlewischristmasadvert is past its prime. The last couple of years have featured pointless characters they can turn into plush & flog for ££ over the next five weeks rather than being full of joy & love like they were 😔 #JohnLewis

20. Wow… erm… that’s that then
The John Lewis ad is basically a cute animal and the murder of a perfectly good song via an ethereal cover version every year and yet the country that produced Shakespeare and The Day Today still regards it as an important cultural event.

21. Good morning!

22. But he’s cute though
John Lewis Christmas advert: I’m sorry but the dragon is a hazard. Especially in a village of predominantly wooden buildings. The villagers should drive it out.
