Among all the adverts, love and hope are the forever themes in their adverts which can touch people’s heart, drive customers’ interest and arise some thoughts of the meaning of life. Like theMan On The Moon which is a thought- provoking advertin 2015, it tells a story that a little girl found a man with silverhair lonely on the moon, everyday she watches him by her telescope. She wants to reach him, so she makes many efforts like waving, firing messages by an arrow, but all failed(Georgina, 2015). However, at the end of this story, a gift of John Lewis represent the love from the little girl flying to the hand of the old man, reminding him he was connected with the earth which is full of love.
At the last scene, the old man sheds a tear of joy, waves his hand from the moon. And a sentence emergences on the screen: ‘Show someone they are loved this Christmas(Georgina, 2015).’ As BI theory infers that consumers’ purchasing behavior are more and more emotional, for advertiser must not only satisfy their functional need, but also emotional needs. John Lewis Christmas video, as a form of advertisement, can cater for the requirement of both.
The leader of the brand marketing, Rachel Swift revealed that the theme of this ads in recent years remains the same, calling for love and care, we’d better prepare gifts with love and sincere for people surrounded, at the same time, teach children they should give when they receive. This is what we want to delivery to our customers in this video.

Even though the Advertising is a kind of marketing communication which can promote commodities and service, John Lewis can build a good brand image by waking people’s sympathy and leaving a positive and unforgettable impression, this is the success of John Lewis, whose advertisement makes contribution to brand image. So some people consider Christmas advert of John Lewis is an art film rather than commercial ads which not only seek to increase the sales of products through branding.
At the same time, the Christmas advert of John Lewis has great influence on society, as the topic of this year is quite schmaltzy but paid little attention before, it can draw more people’s attention about the survival of old people (Georgina, 2015).

As many businessmen believed that advertisement is only part of the long-term investment in the personality of the brand, for John Lewis, it is not enough, it raised large numbers of money upon its good reputation for the charity Age UK (Georgina, 2015), which can benefit for changing the living condition of old people and appeal more attention from public to old people. Big idea effectively used in the advertise, not only improve the brand image, but also help the people in need, that is a responsible company should do.
