Yep, it’s that time again – the John Lewis Christmas advert 2015 is HERE.
Man On The Moon, as the advert is called, is the story of Lily - a little girl who likes looking through her telescope. One day, she sees a cute white-haired old man who lives on the moon. He looks pretty lonely, trudging around between his shed and a bench. She tries to contact him with paper aeroplanes and a message on an arrow, but with no luck until Christmas Day when she sends him a present tied to balloons. It's a telescope which he can use to see her back on earth. Cue: Absolute sobfest, obviously.
The John Lewis Christmas advert song, a cover of Oasis track ‘Half The World Away’, was recorded by 19-year-old rising music star, Aurora.

As well as inspiring people to find their perfect Christmas gift, this year the John Lewis Christmas ad holds a very special message.
The retailer has partnered with Age UK for the festive campaign, to drive awareness and support for some of the million older people who can go for a month without speaking to anyone
'We hope it inspires people to find really special gifts for their loved ones and through our partnership with Age UK, raises awareness of the issue of loneliness amongst older people and encourages others to support in any way they can,' says Craig Inglis, Customer Director at John Lewis.

Calling all you Scrooge types, you know what this means?

K?
