Entertainment| | By Jason Owen
London retailer John Lewis released their new Christmas advert last month, and the heartwarming story is catching the attention of millions of viewers in both the U.K., as well as here at home.
“Man on the Moon” is “the story of a young girl called Lily,” the company’s YouTube page states. “Looking at the moon through her family telescope one night, she is amazed at what she finds, a man on the moon.”
“Lily watches on as our man goes about his chores, all alone up there. She becomes determined to get something to the moon, to send him a message and show him that someone down here is thinking of him.”

The music is performed by Aurora, a remake of the Oasis song, “Half the World Away.”
The touching video has racked up nearly 20 million views since it was released and a viral hashtag, #ManOnTheMoon, has been shared thousands of times.
