25 Days of Happiness, Day 11: The Amazon Ad

The Christmas season brings some memorable commercials: the tearjerkers, the funny ones, the ones that leave you grinning from the inside out. And there have been many that I loved this year, including  Mrs. Santa carrying out her own secret missions, and the Heathrow teddy bears. (Dare you to watch them without getting a lump in your throat.)

But the one that I hope will be seen and shared and taken to heart is this one from Amazon Prime. Yes, the product is mentioned. But this commercial is so much more. It’s a call to understanding. It’s an ode to friendship that reaches across barriers. It’s a reminder that we are so much more alike than we are different.

Commercials get a bad rap, and yes, it’s often deserved. But every once in a while there’s one that reaches beyond the expected and seeks to move us closer to our better selves. THis commercial does that.

Thanks, Amazon. You nailed it.
