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.
