Love it or loathe it? Oasis track is this year's John Lewis Christmas advert

CHRISTMAS has come early for Ireland's favourite Gallaghers, Manchester Irish brothers Liam and Noel. 

The Oasis pair's track Half The World Away, features in the new John Lewis Christmas ad Man on the Moon, which was released today.

And fans of the band have been quick to decide whether the new advert, which features 19-year-old Norwegian singer Aurora performing the Oasis tune, is a Christmas cracker or total turkey.

For some it's was a top class tear-inducing choice, but for others the ad has destroyed one of the best ever Oasis songs, which was originally written Noel and released as a B-side in 1994 reaching number three in the British charts.

The advert tells the story of a magical and unexpected connection between a little girl, Lily, and a Man who lives on the moon.

John Lewis has partnered with Age UK on its Christmas campaign , which they say will help support the million older people who can go for a month without speaking to anyone.


John Lewis Customer Director Craig Inglis said: "We hope it inspires people to find really special gifts for their loved ones and through our partnership with Age UK, raises awareness of the issue of loneliness amongst older people and encourages others to support in any way they can.”
