    Nothing will top the snowman.

    Edit: On the topic of this one, I like it. More than the bear/penguin ones which never really gripped me.
    Couldnt agree more! Except I absolutely love this advert, I disagree with loads of people on here that are unhappy about the scientific inaccuracies. I think its meant to be more metaphorical, with the man on the moon representing elderly people who feel so lonely that they could be "half a world away".
    But anyways, I think its a lovely ad and it brought a tear to my eye!

    What do you think? #ManOnTheMoon
    I don't have any grandparents left so it struck a definite chord with me and I feel a bit soft now but that was adorable. I love Christmas as well, what can I say?

    Not the best tbh. Like 6/10. It's like just pushing materialism to show love!? come on
    There was barely any materialism at all. The girls gift was a telescope which the old man could use to see that he was loved. It wasn't the item it was just the fact that someone cared about him.

    I think the guardian nailed it tbh: http://www.theguardian.com/media/tva...is-moon-hitler

    At least the little girl bought him a telescope, though. She could have bought him food, or a companion, or a ticket back to Earth. But no, she bought a telescope, dooming him to spend the rest of his miserable life watching everyone else have much more fun than him. What a fist to the face. Take that, Moon Hitler.

    How many do you want: http://www.johnlewis.com/browse/elec...scopes/_/N-ajw

    None that powerful though. Nevermind that the balloons never would have made it out there...

    Can't disagree with the sentiment, but it's an advert for a for-profit company - what were you expecting? :laugh:

    Yeah, this one was pretty disappointing. I liked last year's though.
