It's here! It's here! The John Lewis ad for Christmas 2021 has been released and it's everything we hoped it would be. Think aliens and that wonderous feeling of experiencing Christmas for the first time. A lot of us will be feeling like that this year after the COVID-19 pandemic ruined last year's festivities.
What's the song in the John Lewis Christmas 2021 Advert? It's 'Together in Electric Dreams’ by Lola Young, which was originally by Giorgio Moroder and Philip Oakey in 1984.
This year's advert is called 'Unexpected Guest', and follows the story of Nathan, a young boy and his new friend from outer space, aptly named Skye.
As the advert rolls on he highlights the wonder of Christmas and gives her that warm, fuzzy feeling that we all get come Yuletide.
They even share a tender kiss at the end. This is the heartwarming advert we've all been waiting for, as we gear up to spend Christmas 2021 with the loved ones we couldn't share it with last year.
As per usual, John Lewis & Partners also have the merchandise to go along with their Christmas ad, like Nathan's Christmas Jumper*- get it from just £14.
Well done John Lewis!
