Well, it’s that time of year again.
The time when everyone is running from store to store and surfing from website to website trying to get their Christmas shopping finished on time.
And in case you haven’t noticed, it’s also the time of year when our TVs, computers and mobile devices are flooded with an endless stream of Christmas shopping ads.
Most of the holiday ads we see are pretty blah, but last December Chevrolet managed to come up with a real tear-jerker that’s quite possibly the most inspirational ad I have ever seen.
To be sure, this is a secular ad. You won’t see or hear any references at all to the Biblical story of Christ’s birth, but the message conveyed is one of love, charity, sacrifice, community and joy. I have a hunch that Jesus would approve.
A shortened version of this ad aired on TV last year, and chances are you saw it. I’m hoping the folks at Chevy will air it again this year.
Either way, you can watch the entire four minute video right here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Note: As always, you can watch this video at full screen. Just click the little “square” icon in the lower-right corner of the video after it begins playing.
