Christmas is a time we should spend it with family and friends. But we all have such busy lives. Sadly, that often means we compromise the time we should be spending with our loved ones. Maybe that’s one of the reasons this commercial managed to hit a nerve. The clip narrative’s is created around an elderly man whose family is always too busy to see him during the holidays. His children – who already have their families – live in different parts of the world, and they always have something ‘more important’ to do, then visiting their old home.
But their lonely dad, comes up with an idea of how to bring his offsprings all together for Christmas. One day, the children receive letters with bad news, just around the holidays season. In tears, they all hurry to get to their father’s home! Once they got there, the tears of sorrow soon turn into tears of joy!
The message is simple: we should all spend more time with our parents, with our family, with our loved ones Especially during the holiday season!
Well, I don’t know if this is the most powerful Christmas commercial ever, but it’s definitely one of the most watched. The video has gathered close to 40 million views on YouTube alone. Take a look:
