Christmas Ad With Polish Grandad Melts Hearts
This sweet Christmas ad for Allegro (an online auction site in Poland similar to Ebay) shows an elderly man receiving an ‘English for Beginners” kit. We see him practice his English each day at breakfast, on the bus and even in the bath tub.
The ad producers share this about their ad: “Such is this ad: about a grandfather who overcomes obstacles to reunite with his loved ones living abroad. Many Polish people share the same experience. Nearly one million Poles have decided to leave the country in search for a job, mainly heading the United Kingdom. Despite the relatively close distance between the countries, family ties tend to weaken. Therefore, Christmas for many is a difficult time in which we yearn for more.
“But the story we are telling is all-purpose and can be easily understood by any other nation or community who can easily link the happy ending of a smile and tears of emotion to their daily human experience.”
Eventually, we learn why the elderly gentleman needed to learn to speak English, and our hearts melt. The ad concludes with, This ad brings all the feels this Christmas season!
