We all know how annoying holiday travel can be: expensive plane and train tickets, long security lines, crowded airports and planes, lost luggage…the list can go on and on. Practically everyone you come across at the airport during the busy travel season is tense and impatient—not exactly the “holiday spirit” we strive for.
Now, a new advertisement for London’s Heathrow Airport will help you remember what it’s all for. The commercial features two teddy bears (yes, toys), getting off the plane at Heathrow Airport, going through customs, walking down long airport corridors, grabbing their suitcases, and finally passing through arrivals to meet their loved ones. The video ends with a final thought: “Coming Home: The Best Gift of All.”
The heartwarming video was created as part of the airport’s campaign to mark its 70th anniversary: “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,” Heathrow’s Commercial Director, Jonathan Coen, said in a statement. It’s already racked up 4 million views on Facebook and more than 500,000 views on YouTube.
Take a look below and hopefully you’ll find some zen before you have to travel for holidays.
