Watching the John Lewis Christmas advert and voicing your views about it on social media is somewhat of a rite of passage for most people.

For the 'real' John Lewis, it's a day of being confused for a retail store on social media.

A number of tweeters took it upon themselves to warn Mr Lewis about the inevitable barrage of messages, and he decided to join in on the fun.

According to his Twitter biography, he's a computer science educator based in Virginia, America, and not, in fact, a retail store.

From calling one woman a Grinch,to sarcastically accepting the plaudits for the new advert, the American will probably end up changing his Twitter handle before next November.
