So it's only the 6th November but the JL ad is already on our screens.

Definitely a recommended watch:

Despite being peppered with scientific impossibilities, couldn't stop the tear in my eye from that :cry2:

Beautiful song, too :')

Advert made no logical sense. There's no way the present could have reached the moon even with balloons attached. There's no way the parents would buy their daughter an old telescope thingy despite the fact she clearly already has an up-to date working one. And there's no way the old man could pin point the exact location of the girl.



I also seriously doubt that he could live on the moon either.

Think they have misjudged the level of sentimentality there.

Mmm, not 100% sure about this one - song is good, and the ad overall is good, but don't think it's their best.

Not the best tbh. Like 6/10. It's like just pushing materialism to show love!? come on

Not as creative as previous adverts, but it still did a good job of making me cry.

Not their best. They could have made it a lot more heart felt which would have got more of the point across that they are trying to highlight how a lot of elderly people are alone at this time of year which is heartbreaking and we should try and change that. Overall I thought it was a bit flat

I like the message they are trying to get across but personally, I thought it could have been better. I preferred last years advert by far.

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.
