Shop the John Lewis Christmas advert #ManOnTheMoon

Each year we eagerly anticipate the John Lewis Christmas advert – you can spot it a mile off, the glorious story-telling, the warm fuzzy feeling you get inside and the tears, oh, the tears!

These timeless adverts remind us of the true meaning of Christmas, remember Monty The penguin from last year? Or how about Bear and the hare?

This year John Lewis’s #ManOnTheMoon advert reminds us to show someone they’re loved this Christmas.

The advert begins with Lily, a small child looking through a telescope when she spots an old man on the moon, after many attempts to try and contact him, Christmas day arrives and Lily is having fun with her family. Meanwhile, the Man on the Moon receives a present transported to the moon by balloons with the message ‘Show someone they’re loved this Christmas’…cue tears.

John Lewis have partnered with Age UK this Christmas to help some of the million older people who will go for a month without speaking to anyone. John Lewis will also donate the proceeds on sales of certain products charity.

Remember, you can raise a free donation for your chosen charity every time you shop online at John Lewis and 4,000 other online retailers via Give as you Live.
