It's Up

Well, it's up on line, not sure if it's on our TV screens yet as I haven't watched much TV this week. Christmas has finally arrived and there's no denying it from this point on.  Yesterday, I was emailed a preview link to the new John Lewis Christmas advert and couldn't stop myself from taking a look. It's called the 'Man on the Moon', the song I believe is sung by Norwegian singer Aurora and is raising money for Age UK.

They always manage to extract a tear from my eye, whenever I watch them and this year's is no exception. Their Christmas ads seem to have become some sort of UK moral conscience pricker, which is no bad thing. I'd like it even more if it wasn't encouraging you to buy something.

Check it out on twitter or here on YouTube.

  3. I made the mistake of reading a couple of spoof articles before watching the ad so I can't help but laugh whenever I see it. I'm glad JL have teamed up with Age UK though. As I've said a few times on my blog, I know we get people coming into the shop because they know we'll chat with them and it could be the only proper conversation they'll have that day.

    1. It's good to get out and have a chat to people at any age, but people can get more isolated as they get older, so it's good that there are places for them to go and have human contact.

    2. I think occasionally people forget it's a shop and think it's more a social club!
