John Lewis releases their Christmas advert for 2021
One of the most hotly anticipated Christmas ads has just been released, a week earlier than usual!
This year’s John Lewis Christmas Ad shows an unlikely friendship between a little boy and an alien who crash landed on earth right before Christmas as she then experiences her first ever Christmas. This year’s character is an alien called Skye as the tried and tested formula of other characters such as Monty the Penguin, Moz the Monster and Excitable Edgar were a huge success for the brand.
Previous festive ads for the UK department store racked up millions of views online, with memorable storylines including the Old Man Who Lived on the Moon in 2015 and Buster the Boxer Dog in 2016.
The song on this year’s ad is a cover of Philip Oakey and Giorio Moroder’s 1985 hit “electric Dreams” performed by 20-year-old Lola Young.
