Horror is coming this Christmas.

It's been less than 12 hours since John Lewis premiered their much anticipated new Christmas advert, but there is already a spoof.

Introducing the John Lewis Christmas Advert: The Horror Edition. 

(Warning: this video contains evil penguins.)

The film was created by Jon Harvey, who said he swapped "the John Lennon music with the trailer to The Babadook and p-p-p-pick up a heart attack".

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.


If you haven't seen the original, you really should - it's pretty amazing - and join in on the #FutureJohnLewisAds hashtag if you think you can do better.
