The Official John Lewis Christmas Ad Has Landed



Its seven weeks until Christmas, and as the made up saying goes ‘seven weeks before Christmas means it’s time for the John Lewis Christmas advert.’ Catchy, we know.

Well. It’s here. It landed at 8am this morning. The ad comes with a charitable spin this year with the department store hoping to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for Age UK.

The ad itself is set in space and features a girl called Lily who really loves her telescope. If you love her telescope too then you can buy it at John Lewis, which is handy.

As Christmas approaches Lily spots an old man living all alone on the moon. We’ll let you enjoy the rest of it spoiler free. It’s a great ad, all very touching and that, although do be warned, they take some huge liberties with the laws of astrophysics.
