This depressing German Christmas commercial will leave you in tears

The title of this commercial should be definitely be “The Most Depressing, Heartbreaking Christmas Commercial Ever.”

The advertisement, which you can watch below, is for the German supermarket EDEKA and begins with an elderly man finding out that, once again, his family will be unable to visit him for the holidays. Therefore, he spends his Christmas alone.

And then he suddenly passes away.

Until his children turn home for his funeral and they discover that the man had faked his death.


The family then has a very Merry Christmas, regardless of the fact that the elderly man had faked his death. So sweet.
