The two-minute ad tells the story of Moz the Monster, who becomes unlikely friends with seven-year-old Joe after the youngster discovers him living under his bed.

Their journey is soundtracked to an Elbow cover of The Beatles’ Golden Slumbers from 1969 Abbey Road album.

The advert was directed by Michel Gondry who helmed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He is also known for his collaborations with artists including Radiohead, Björk and Daftpunk.
