John Lewis unveiled their annual Christmas advert on Friday morning and it included a rather obvious nod to the events of 2020.
Set to the backdrop of a song named 'A Little Love', written and harmonised by British soul singer Celeste, the clip showed people being kind to one another.
It began with a young boy getting his football stuck in a tree, and a young girl helping him retrieve it using her heart-shaped umbrella.
The little boy was then seen helping a snowman fly away with the help of a balloon – who then helped a family of snowmen repair their car so that they can deliver some bags of Waitrose shopping to an elderly man.
However, it was the scene at the end of the advert that had viewers tweeting their disappointment.
As the little girl and a teenage boy could be seen departing a red bus, the number of the vehicle was 222 and the destination was Tooting.
Bus enthusiasts were quick to spot the error and took to Twitter to vent.
One person tweeted: "The John Lewis Christmas ad is sending me, why the F*** IS THE BUS GOING TO TOOTING??"
A second viewer added: "That John Lewis ad is cute providing you can get past the fact there is no 222 bus to Tooting. Which obviously I can't."
A third person posted: "My only criticism of the john lewis advert is there is no 222 to tooting."
And a fourth chimed in: "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 added: "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?"
However, other viewers were left wiping the tears away after the advert premiered on the brand's respected social media channels.
"The message behind the advert is priceless! Been a nasty year, and this is a great idea," said one fan.
While a second commented: "Awwww this made my eyes watery given the year we've all had #givealittlelove indeed… thank you!"
