This is a real tear-jerker!
Could a commercial be any more emotional? Apparently. It's a commercial sponsored by the well known German Supermarket brand, Edeka. However, the ending of this commercial is so shocking that people are 50-50 if they should break down into tears, say nothing because they are so surprised, or both. The video is just about to hit 40 million views on YouTube showing just how viral this small commercial became! If anyone's happy about this video, it's definitely Edeka with the amount of free publicity they are receiving.
The commercial tells a story of a father who is an empty nester as his adult children year after year leave him alone on Christmas. They become so busy with their lives that he enters into a lonely and sad depression. Then the video pans to the children hearing that their father has passed away so they all fly home from all over the world to their father's house.
But with a twist of events, when they walk into the home, they find a fully set table ready for Christmas dinner. The children are in amazement as their father appears from the kitchen and explains to them that his fake death was the only way for him to bring them all home for the holidays. The commercial closes with the family having an incredible time together with the end credit that writes, "Come Home".
MY HEART IS ALREADY RIPPED OUT OF MY CHEST AND ON THE FLOOR.
However, I think this video is beautiful and has a wonderful message.
