Show someone they’re loved this Christmas
The two-minute clip shows a six-year-old called Lily trying to reach an old man who lives alone in a hut on the moon.
She spies him through the family telescope.
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.
But nothing – bow and arrow, paper aeroplane or snail mail – can reach him.
When Christmas Day comes around, a tree is plonked in the living room, presents are promptly unwrapped, and Lily is surrounded by family.
The old man gets a gift of his own: a classic telescope, delivered to him in a cloud of colourful helium balloons.
There are tears when they finally lock eyes.
The music is ‘Half the World Away’ performed by Aurora, the original song was by Oasis.
The advert is a bit of a tear-jerker, the company has teamed up with the charity Age UK to raise awareness of loneliness and the aged at Christmas in particular – this is the reason we are showing it here.
