Christmas season is upon us and with that comes the inevitable barrage of Christmas commercials.
Some are cheesy. Some are funny. Some are creative. And some will make you cry. This 3-minute long Polish commercial is one of the ones that will make you cry. How do I know this? Because I am crying right now as I write this. Damn you, Polish search engine! I'm guessing you're a search engine because the bar on the screen looks like a search box, but I'm not so sure because I cannot understand Polish! But understanding Polish is not a necessity to watch this commercial.
In fact, the adorable old man in the commercial is trying to learn how to speak English, courtesy of a book called English For Beginners. There's a distinct Pixar's Up feeling to this entire thing. Except the old man isn't a curmudgeon. He's too cute for words, and he mixes up the words "fork" and "knife." I will not spoil the end of the commercial for you, but I will warn you to have a box of tissues handy. If you have a heart, you will cry. If you do not cry, well, it's nice to meet you, Scrooge.
