John Lewis Christmas Advert 2015 – #ManOnTheMoon
Christmas is here!! Yes, we know it’s only just turned November but Christmas officially arrives when the John Lewis advert is released and this morning it did just that!
This year’s is called #ManOnTheMoon and tells the story of a little girl as she looks through her telescope to see find an elderly man living on his own on the moon. She wants to wish him Merry Christmas and does so by sending him a telescope as a present by tying it to a bunch of balloons.
John Lewis teamed up with Age UK for the ad to ask us all to think of those who will be alone this year. It aims to raise awareness of a million elderly people who go for a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member.
The advert is soundtracked to Oasis’ Half the World Away and recorded by the 19-year-old Norwegian artist Aurora. The advert ends with the tagline, ‘Show someone they’re loved this Christmas.’ A brilliant advert with a brilliant message.
