It’s here! The John Lewis Christmas ad is giving us ALL the feels today

The long-anticipated John Lewis Christmas ad for 2015 has arrived, and boy, does it live up to the hype.

Last year we met Sam and his friend Monty the Penguin, and in 2013 it was The Bear and The Hare, but this year we have an all-human cast.

Our protagonist spends her evenings looking at the stars through her telescope, when she spots a lonely old soul – the Man on the Moon. Through the magic of Christmas she manages to make him feel closer to the rest of the world, and give him some festive cheer.

Norweigen songstress Aurora provides the soundtrack – a haunting acoustic version of Oasis's Half The World Away.

Watch it – and prepare for a few tears.
