Elton John has posted a short video explaining some of the scenes in the Christmas commercial he stars in for U.K. department store John Lewis and Partners.
He says, "Each of the scenes were inspired by moments from my life. Which one is your favorite?"
The scenes he points out are:
- Rehearsals in Canada for his current Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour
- His Red Piano Las Vegas residency
- Sleeping With the Past tour
- Playing a piano "somewhere over the Atlantic" on his private jet
- London recording studio
- And, a shot of him as a child at the piano with the caption, "Where it all began, Pinner." Pinner is a section of Middlesex, England.
The commercial has been viewed close to 10-million times on YouTube.
