Christmas Clip O' the Day | Yes, it's an Advertisement. Yes, it's that advertisement.

Yes, it's an ad.  Yes, I'm Ms. I Don't Buy Christmas.  But this two minute animation tells a such a strong, simple story in such a beautifully restrained manner that it's easy to ignore the sales pitch.  I've watched it a couple of times over the last few weeks, and it gets me each time.  No matter what mood I'm in, it softens me.

Yes, it's an ad.  But unless I hear it is responsible for, say, Peter O'Toole's death, I will continue to embrace its quality, class and general big-heartedness.
