The heartwarming commercial ends with the message: ‘Give what you can this Christmas.’
The touching three-minute long commercial has once again been created on a shoestring budget for under £100 by the store’s owner Tom Jones.
Tom, 31, said he wanted to put a smile on people’s face this year after a difficult 12 months for everyone due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The advert, filmed inside Tom and Laura’s flat, was only made last weekend and has already been viewed 60,000 times in the last 24 hours.
Arthur’s father Tom Jones, 30, made the two-minute video in 2019 to give big budget retailers John Lewis and M&S a run for their money.
Last year, the independent store, which has been run by generations of the same family since 1895, filmed the advert in one day and it was viewed thousands of times in just hours.
The toddler stole the show in the two-minute clip which was filmed and edited by his father Tom and family friend Josh Holdaway.

Owner of the store Tom Jones said: ‘There is an underlying message. We are just a small independent shop in Mid Wales trying to compete with the big boys like John Lewis and M&S’
