Upscale department store chain John Lewis released their 2014 Christmas ad Thursday — and it's taking the Internet by storm.
Amassing more than 2 million views on YouTube in just seven hours, the ad follows a child and his pet penguin as they go about their everyday activities. Eventually, the young boy notices that his penguin is lonely and missing a significant other. The advert concludes with the child surprising his pet with a very special gift for Christmas.
