John Lewis Christmas Advert is Here!
At 8am this morning (06.11.2015) the new John Lewis Christmas advert dropped. Cue hysteria.
This year’s advert features a little girl, Lily, who stares up at the sky through her telescope at the #manonthemoon – I wonder how long that’ll be trending for.
Sad that he has noone to celebrate Christmas with, kind-hearted Lily sends him a gift by balloon-post (UP style).
The breathy tones of newcomer 19-year-old Aurora accompany the 2-minute film, singing Oasis’ “Half the World Away”.
It has all the components of a great Christmas advert: Christmas cheer, something to tug at your heart strings and a musical cover that’s bound to hit the charts somewhere near the top.
Twitter reactions, however, have been quite mixed.
Vlogger Tanya Burr seemed to love it, getting into the Christmas spirit:
SO. SWEET. #manonthemoon ?
