In 2016 did John Lewis & Partners in the UK released this ad for Christmas with BusterTheBoxer!
Even if I’m not a fan of Christmas, I love the card writing … all the lights … and great Christmas adverts! This is one of the best.
I dedicate this post to my blogging sister Ann Christine@LEYA, for the fantastic year we had this year – great dates and the trip to Szczecin together with her husband Lars. Looking forward to our 2020 adventures!
Thank you for 2019, A-C!
Buster is actually called Biff, lives in Bedfordshire with two other Boxers, Betty and Darcy, is five years old and has lived with his family since he was eight weeks old.
Biff wasn’t looking for work and has actually never even appeared in a film.
But he caught the production team’s eye at his training club who were looking for a “very handsome dog” to play the part of Buster in the John Lewis commercial.
He beat 11 other dogs to get the role and spent two weeks with specialist trainers to get ready for filming.
Biff’s key trick was to look up and down as if watching something or someone bounce.
His skills have gone down well with fans.
“What I like about Christmas is that you can
make people forget the past with the present.”
