The funniest and strangest #Manonthemoon spoofs so far

UK's John Lewis Christmas ad spawns host of parodies
This year's highly anticipated Christmas ad from UK department store chain John Lewis, which broke on TV and online on Friday, has spawned an array of spoofs and parodies.
 
The ad, created by Adam & Eve/DDB, has become an annual event in the advertising calendar and was viewed 5.9 million times on YouTube within the first 24 hours of its publication.
 
Here is a round-up of the funniest and strangest #ManOnTheMoon spoofs so far:
 
The John Lewis Christmas Ad 2015 [The Dark Side Version] - Star Wars parody by The Poke
 
 
So what if the man living on the moon is actually Darth Vader? How would the "Star Wars" villain react to receiving a thoughtful gift from a little girl on Earth?

This effort by the Welsh comedy rap act is more of a critique on Christmas advertising in general and mixes in several John Lewis ads from recent years.

John Lewis Moon Hitler Advert 2015 - #MoonHitler Parody by Simon Mulvaney
 
 
Something never addressed in the ad is the question of why this poor old man is stranded on the moon in the first place. Perhaps he has done something evil? Perhaps he is Adolf Hitler?

If you're from Devon, you'll love it. If you're from Cornwall, you might not like it. If you're not from either place, you might not get it.
