A man who made his own emotional advert for just £50 last year, putting the likes of John Lewis, and to shame, has just released this year's follow-up version. See where you think this stacks up against the blockbuster Christmas adverts.

Christmas is a time for happiness, love and belonging. We're excited to share this year's Christmas film.

From all of at …Merry Christmas! x
