Half The World Away?

Just seen this years John Lewis ad for the first time, as classy  and moving as usual.  I’m sure I’ve posted about them before.

The sales of their goods is always secondary to the Christmas message,  albeit it about family and non-religious.

A grand-child looking for her grand-father who is half the world away,  old and alone is there a worse place to be?

At times like that its the smallest thought that matters,  I think JL nail it in this ad.

The theme song is a stripped down cover of Oasis’s Half The World Away by Norwegian singer Aurora.

For comparison,  I’ve included a nice acoustic live version by Noel Gallagher the vastly more talented of the two brothers in my opinion.
