* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFPcsYGriEs This 2016 Apple Ad]]features Frankenstein's creation heading into town, placing Christmas light bulbs into his neck bolts, and attempting to lead the people in the singing of "There is no place like for Home for the Holidays", despite the fact that people are scared of him. When he sees people are still afraid of him, he starts to get sad, which only gets worse when one of the bulbs go out, leaving poor Frankie looking like he's about to cry. Then, one little girl beckons him over, and with just a touch, relights the bulb and joins him in singing. Frankie gives a small smile of gratitude and continues the song, but then the whole town joins in, to his astonishment. It ends with Frankie smiling as tears well up in his eyes, finally getting the acceptance he's always wanted. Excuse me, I think I have something in my eye.
** The notion is heartwarming as well. Frankie goes down to a place that's afraid of him just to spread a little holiday cheer. If that doesn't warm your heart, I don't know what will.

** The notion is heartwarming as well. Frankie goes Heck, this would melt your heart even if it wasn't a commercial. Just the idea of Frankenstein going down to a place that's afraid of him just to spread a little holiday cheer. If that doesn't warm your heart, I don't know what will.will.
** It becomes even more heartwarming if you read the book and realized that all he ever wanted was to be accepted. Looks like he finally got his wish.

* More of a Thanksgiving one than a Christmas one, but it still fits into this folder. In 2016 Macy's premiered [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCv37nXwlPw this]] commercial about a kid seeing the UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade in person when a balloon of Santa winks at him. As the boy grows older he still watches the parade in that same spot every year and the balloon winks every time it sees him. [[spoiler:Eventually, there comes a time where he does not attend, and the balloon flies away to a countryside where the now-elderly protagonist lives. When they make eye contact, the balloon winks and then flies away.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ouu6LGGIWsc An Amazon Prime commercial shows a priest and an imam get together in the priest's home for a cup of tea]]. They sit and talk for a while, both shown rubbing their knees. And when the imam gets up to leave, they both wince at pain in their knees, but neither makes mention of it. After the imam leaves, it shows both in thought before getting out their smartphones and ordering something, with the packages being received in the next scene. It's revealed they'd bought each other a pair of knee braces/pads, which they put on under their vestments before going to practice their faith in their own way (the imam bowing in reverence to Mecca, and the priest kneeling in prayer).

* In a way, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEuh1zJjNM4 these]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1hb-Nb83bY ads]], for butter and Lipton respectively, both featuring [[Series/{{Today}} Willard Scott]]. Sure, he might be a bit of a BaseBreaker due to his [[BunnyEarsLawyer rather odd]] behavior, but he's just so ''cheerful'' and near-impossible to dislike.
