I usually say I tear up while watching holiday commercials, but never actually cry. Yes, I do feel my eyes get heavy, but never shed a tear. I found myself watching accounting YouTube videos and ended up watching countless holiday commercials, in search for the one that actually made my emotions soar. These five videos require a box of tissues and your best friend to snuggle with afterwards. They will warm your heart and get you into the holiday spirit.
1. John Lewis Christmas Advert 2015 #ManOnTheMoon
"This is the story of a young girl called Lily. Looking at the moon through her family telescope one night, she is amazed at what she finds, a man on the moon. Lily watches on as our man goes about his chores, all alone up there. She becomes determined to get something to the moon, to send him a message and show him that someone down here is thinking of him."
2. Extra Gum: The Story of Sarah & Juan #GiveExtragetextra
Leave it to a gum commercial to get me feeling romantic. I am officially in love with a fictional couple after just two minutes. "A girl. A guy. And a stick of gum. See their love story unwrap. "
3. Target Holiday Commercial 2015
This one is actual a mini-series with chapters! Anything with a dog immediately captures my heart. "Three kids and Bullseye discover a magical holiday world and set out on an epic quest to light a ridiculously giant tree."
4. Apple -- The Song
All time favorite commercial. It can be expected that Apple could create an entire storyline about someone's life and family relationships in under a minute and thirty seconds. "With a Mac, iPhone or iPad you have the power to create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time. It could be a movie, a homemade card or a song that brings two generations closer together."
This was their commercial last year. This year's commercial is just as lovely.
5. Coca-Cola and Walmart Holiday Commercial #makesomeonehappy
Leave it to two of the most well-known corporations to put together a well made production. "Here’s to getting what you really want for the holidays. #MakeSomeoneHappy."
