This Might Be The Best Christmas Ad Of The Year…
Every year ads come out around Christmas for the newest thing, from kid’s toys all the way up to automobiles. But sometimes ads can be really touching and evoke more feelings than simply the desire to buy as most do. A local U.K. Hardware store has made a touching commercial that does just that, and many after seeing it are claiming that it may be the best Christmas ad of 2019.
“Fans couldn’t get enough of a local hardware store’s holiday commercial and are dubbing the adorable spot the “best Christmas ad of the year.”
Spending less than $150 to create the viral ad, Hafod Hardware — a family-owned business in Rhayader, Wales –premiered the ad on Monday and was immediately inundated with praise for its quality and creativity, given its budget.
The ad shows two-year-old Arthur managing the hardware shop owned by his father, Tom Jones; it follows the boy as he goes about the day-to-day duties operating the family business as the shop’s “owner.”
Watch The Ad Below.
“Speaking to Wales Online, Jones said the video features four generations of his family and was shot in a single day, with assistance from a pal who is a filmmaker. He said his only expense for creating the ad was the approximately $131 he spent for permission to use a cover of the 1984 Alphaville smash, “Forever Young.”
“Opened back in 1895, Hafod Hardware has been passed down the generations. Today, it is run by 30-year-old Tom, along with help of wife Laura, Arthur and Arthur’s grandparents.
Tom, who grew up in Rhayader, said: “It definitely resonates because it’s actually family-run. People always compare our videos to the likes of John Lewis and we try to get the same message across as the multi-million-pound adverts do.”
This is just sweet and to think they were able to do the whole ad for just a little more than a hundred and get such great results.
