John Lewis Advert

Yep it's that time of year again, it's the John Lewis advert. I've done this for the past two years and I actually kind of enjoy doing them. I like to give my review on the advert because everyone loves the John Lewis adverts. If I remember correctly I wasn't so keen on last year's one but the one before that I absolutely loved.

I'm guessing by now everyone has seen the new John Lewis advert so what do you all think?
I have to say it's still not my favourite one, this year John Lewis have done their advert where a little girl finds the man on the moon and she wants to give him a present because the man is on his own. It is lovely and sweet but at first I didn't understand it... to me adverts are meant to promote the store and what are they having at Christmas and this really didn't.

I understand that they are reminding us not to forget the elderly this year, and it is a really sweet and caring advert, and it could bring a little tear to your eye.

It didn't help that the day after I first saw it one of my friends put on Facebook that the old man has a telescope so he can perv on the girl. So now when I'm watching the advert that is what pops up in my head and it kind of makes me laugh.

So let me know what you think about the John Lewis advert. I'm in two minds about it, I like it but I don't entirely get it, especially from a brand perspective. Still my best one has to be from two years' ago. I don't think they can beat it for me.

Here is this year John Lewis Advert 

And this is the one I really like

  1. I have loved every previous years advert but this year I am not convinced. It doesn't give me that warm, Christmassy feeling like I have previously felt x

  2. I agree, it's not my favourite advert that they've done. The message is a little lost I think. Hopefully 2016 is clearer!
