If you have recently watched television, you have likely seen a commercial with two adorable teddy bears dressed as an elderly couple that are strolling hand in hand through a bustling airport. The teddy bear commercial was recently released and has already taken the world by storm.
Whether you are the one traveling or you are waiting for someone to travel to you, traveling is a huge part of the holiday season.
We all look forward to seeing our loved ones during the holiday season and this commercial uses that feeling to their advantage.
The commercial is titled “Coming Home for Christmas” and was distributed by London’s Heathrow Airport. It was the first Christmas commercial that airport has ever put out and it was certainly successful. The ad was filmed at the airport over the course of three days while the airport was operating.
The commercial, regardless of it being just a minute long, has received over three million views.
It is sweet, warm, and fuzzy, similar to the adorable bears that we follow throughout it.
We watch the bears get off of their airplane, get their passports checked, conquer an escalator together, and struggle reaching their baggage. They are portrayed as a well-dressed older couple, supporting one another in the attempt to travel without issues. The ending is guaranteed to pull on your heart strings.
Check out the commercial below:
Jonathon Coen, the commercial’s director spoke on the commercial saying, “We love the film and hope the bears’ journey through the airport captures that excitement you feel when walking through Heathrow arrivals into the arms of your loved ones at Christmas.”
We think the commercial is adorable and we can see why it has gotten international attention, cute teddy bears usually do.
