It's a Lidl bit funny...
The story of the advert shows Elton tracing back to his childhood and the Christmas gift that would change his life – his first piano.
John Lewis are now selling a Yamaha piano for £872 following the release of the advert.
Although the advert has been widely praised by many on social media, Lidl supermarket took to Twitter to have their own say:
They tweeted: "Just because you don't have £872 to spend on a piano, doesn't mean you can't be the next Elton," and poked fun at the famous Elton lyrics, tweaking them to read "It's a Lidl bit funny..."
Lidl are offering a much more modest option of £89.99 for a Yamaha keyboard, so you don't have to delve deep into your pockets for a brilliant Christmas gift.
