Jablonka made the advert as part of his courework and uploaded it to YouTube back in June.

The video revolved around the story of a snowman who falls in love after being trapped in a snow globe. 

A spokesman for John Lewis said: “Wow, what a great effort. Nick is clearly very talented, and we’d love to invite him in to spend some time with us behind the scenes to see how we create our TV ads.”

“You hear about things going viral, but you never think it will be you,” Jablonka told ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

He added: “I’m a fan of John Lewis adverts. When we think ‘Christmas’, we think ‘John Lewis’, so it gave me a lot of freedom as to what I could do.”
