It's not even December yet, and we've already seen several seriously creative holiday advertisements. From German supermarket chain Edeka's reminder of what's important this holiday season to Amazon's friendship-focused commercial to an emotionally charged holiday-themed advertisement from the Alzheimer's Research UK organization, 2016 is shaking up to be the year of excellent holiday ads.
This one, though, may just take the cake. Wes Anderson teamed up with H&M to direct its newest Christmas ad, a short film titled "Come Together."
It takes a place on a train with several passengers who are traveling for the holidays. Unfortunately, bad weather and mechanical difficulties have caused serious delays. Adrien Brody, who play a conductor in the four-minute short, relays the news to passengers and plans an impromptu holiday party for all the passengers.
The final scene is a touching one that reminds us of the beauty of coming together — even if it's with complete strangers.
"This story may resonate more than ever at a time in the world where we could all do with giving a stranger a hug," Brody said in a press release.
