It didn't take long for a spoof to begin doing the rounds incorporating the US election which led to Donald Trump being appointed the new president of America.

The advert as we know it features Buster, a dog who quite clearly loves to trampoline; after parents buy their six-year-old daughter the item as a gift, she ecstatically runs through the house and into the garden - only to find Buster already having a go. has taken out these characters and swapped them for Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Trump himself. See the results for yourself.


The song featured in this year's advert is "One Day I'll Fly Away" by band Vaults who follow in the footsteps of Aurora, Gabrielle Aplin and Tom Odell in providing the track.

We reviewed the advert, branding it a "pleasingly non-heartstring-tugging effort."
