Eagle-eyed viewers have spotted an error in the John Lewis Christmas advert.

Christmas lovers were delighted to kick-off the festive countdown with the highly anticipated advert but some were left scratching their heads over a bus featured.

The heartwarming clip was inspired by random acts of kindness carried out during lockdown.

It starts with a little boy who gets his football stuck in a tree, reports The Mirror.

Then his pal, a girl with broken glasses, steps in to help using a heart umbrella to knock it down.

This sparks further acts of kindness as the little boy helps a snowman fly away, who then helps a family get their car going.

But viewers weren’t impressed by the next scene – although the actual exchange was very heartwarming, as a kind-hearted nurse repaired the little girl’s specs with a heart-shaped sticker from an apple.

However, the duo were travelling on a 222 bus which said it was heading to Tooting, but in real life that bus route runs from Uxbridge to Hounslow.

Bus spotters took to social media to share their disappointment at the error.

One viewer moaned: “The John Lewis Christmas ad is sending me, why the F*** IS THE BUS GOING TO TOOTING??”

Another commented: “That John Lewis ad is cute providing you can get past the fact there is no 222 bus to Tooting,” adding: “Which obviously I can’t.”

A third tweeted: “My only criticism of the john lewis advert is there is no 222 to Tooting.”

A fourth blasted: “I’m afraid I can’t endorse this advert because I’ve ridden the 222 countless times and it goes nowhere near Tooting.”

Another eagle-eyed viewer wrote: “FACT CHECK: The 222 runs from Uxbridge to Hounslow and doesn’t go anywhere near Tooting. Did you really think we wouldn’t notice @johnlewis?”

But others shared their love for the advert, with one writing: “Anyone else seen the  #johnlewischristmasadvert  It is so what is needs right now.

“A little bit of kindness & love really does make the world go round. So here is a little from me.”
