Love the John Lewis Christmas adverts? See this year's tear-jerker, then pick your favourite ever ad from our round-up...
It’s being described as the most emotional John Lewis Christmas advert yet, and this year’s ‘Man on the Moon’ ad will definitely make you think that bit more about how Christmas 2015 will be spent.
A far cry from last year’s brilliant Monty the penguin advert, this year John Lewis have teamed up with Age UK to really pull on your heartstrings and hopefully do your bit for a good cause. Featuring an optimistic young girl, a loveable but lonely old man and, of course, a soundtrack that’s bound to go straight to number one, it’s set to be the most talked-about advert of the festive season – and with good reason.
We don’t want to give away too much, but you can see the full advert for yourself in the clip below. Just be sure to have your tissues at the ready…
'Monty's Christmas', the 2014 John Lewis advert, was a commercial success - with the company's 'Monty' stuffed penguin toys selling out almost instantaneously.
Featuring a Tom Odell cover of John Lennon's 'Real Love', the heart melting story follows a little boy called Sam and his pet penguin Monty as they snow sledge, ride the bus and build lego towers together. But all Monty really wants is to find a mate, so on Christmas morning Sam presents him the best gift of all, a lady penguin named Mable.
