He’s even gone as far as banning Noel from their family pub, for allowing a cover of the Oasis track ‘Half The World Away’ - which was written solely by Noel - to be used in the department store’s recent campaign.
An insider tells The Mirror: “Liam has been making his usual snidey remarks about the song being on the John Lewis advert.
The source continues: “[Liam] accused Noel of being shameless for letting John Lewis use the track… He’s told mutual friends and family that Noel is a sell-out, and even joked that he won’t be welcome in the local pub near their mum’s house… not that he can enforce that!”
John Lewis’s newest Christmas effort, dubbed #ManOnTheMoon, deals with the theme of loneliness around the festive period, and features a cover of ‘Half The World Away’, performed by Norwegian singer/songwriter, Aurora.
A still from the emotional ad
The ad tells the story of an old man who lives alone on the moon, who is eventually delighted when a young girl reaches out to him, and offers him a telescope, so he can see her on Earth.
‘Half The World Away’ was initially an Oasis b-side, but garnered attention when it was used as the opening theme tune to the British sitcom, ‘The Royle Family’.
