WATCH: Ryanair's hilarious answer to the John Lewis Christmas advert

David Kearns

Cheeky budget airline Ryanair has spoofed this year’s much-loved John Lewis Man on the Moon Christmas advert.

In the hilarious clip, an elderly man - who bears an uncanny resemblance to airline boss Michael O’Leary – is seen indulging in a rather unsightly and bad habit.

And rather than being left to stare out through his telescope for ever more, the ‘O’Leary in the Moon’ receives a dozen or so vouchers for Ryanair.

Many of the central John Lewis elements feature in the parody – a solitary old man, a young girl with a telescope, a park bench inexplicably placed on the moon.

As music plays in the background with lines such as “like to leave this city” and “half a world away”, the elderly man looks up to the camera and winks.

Predictably, he is ‘over the moon’.
