Monster 'under the bed' video thought to be John Lewis Christmas ad teaser

A video clip featuring a creature with big eyes hiding under the bed is thought to be a teaser clip for this year's Christmas campaign by John Lewis.

The retailer, whose sentimental Christmas ads by Adam & Eve/DDB have become an anticipated annual event in popular culture, is believed to be behind the video.

The clip was published today by a Twitter account called @UndertheBed2017 which tweeted the video at 8.05am.

Last month John Lewis did not comment on speculation that this year's Christmas ad would feature a "big, cuddly monster".

The ad, which is due for release in the coming days, has been directed by Oscar-winning director Michel GondryCampaign revealed last month.

A John Lewis spokeswoman declined to comment on this story.
