See what treats John Lewis have in store (literally) for you this year
This year’s John Lewis Christmas campaign has been revealed – and the country has well and truly fallen in love with the #ManOnTheMoon.
Featuring a little girl called Lily and her quest to wish a lonely man on the moon a very merry Christmas, John Lewis has outdone itself with another festive favourite.
As well as warming hearts around the UK, John Lewis has partnered with Age UK this year to raise money for the millions of elderly people across the country that have to spend Christmas alone.
The retail giant has also created an app where children (we really mean adults) can play a game, learn facts about the moon and join in the countdown to the full moon this Christmas. The advert’s cover of Oasis’ Half The World Away by new artist Aurora is also available to download on iTunes and Spotify.
The interactive experience has been brought to stores too.
Just as we saw giant grizzly bears all over stores in 2013 and multiple Montys last year, 11 of John Lewis’ biggest stores will be equipped with a mock moon set where children can learn fun facts and pose on the Man’s bench on the moon.
Even better, Oxford Street’s store are hosting a Lunar Lookout – a winter wonderland that offers the chance to stare at the stars through telescopes and get cosy in the little log cabins.
And just as penguins flew off the shelves last year, this year’s moon merchandise is already proving popular.
Multiple pyjama sets and telescopes have already sold out, but beyond that – mugs, cushions, wrapping paper and advent calendars are available for all ages and genders.
