Three cheers for London's Heathrow Airport! They truly deserve a standing ovation for this, their first holiday commercial ever! This sweet commercial certainly brought more than just a tear to our eyes.

This touching ad has two main components that make for a perfect holiday/travel commercial: teddy bears and good music.

During the ad we follow a whimsical bear couple whose journey through the airport is a bit difficult, and an all-too-relatable one at that.

After first having a bit of trouble grabbing their luggage and then trying to pull a treat from the stack at the airport convenience store, the bears glance around apprehensively to look for their family at arrivals.

Then comes the moment when your heart begins to sink and the tears start flowing as they miraculously change into elderly humans who are happily greeted by their two excited grandchildren. I kid you not, this is so sweet!

Take a look:


"Christmas is my favorite time of year at Heathrow-the airport is abuzz with families and friends reuniting for this special time of year," said Heathrow's commercial director, Jonathan Coen.

"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."

All in all, the commercial's message is short but sweet: coming home is the best gift of all, and we couldn't agree more!

What do you think about Heathrow's first holiday commercial?
