John Lewis’s Christmas ad has only been out for three days and yet a parody of it has already emerged.
It’s arguably one of the most anticipated ad spots during Christmas, and this year John Lewis puts a man on the moon for the festive season.
Called #ManOnTheMoon, the ad features a little girl looking through her telescope and seeing an elderly man on the moon.
The two-minute ad has already been watched more than nine million times on YouTube.
And humour site The Poke has already parodied it with a Star Wars version. Darth Vader looks down on the telescope little girl as he receives the present – which he in turn blows uses to blow up the earth.
Welsh rap stars known as Goldie Lookin’ Chain have also tried their hand at a John Lewis parody.
The three-minute clip features this year’s Christmas ad, as well as previous ads, and the hilarious lyrics of the rap artists with inspiration from Oasis.
Twitter’s reaction to the new John Lewis ad:

Moved by #ManOnTheMoon Bought my elderly neighbour a telescope. He loves it so much he’s not had a chance to bring in the milk for days now.
