Heartwarming, yet filled with humor, this Christmas ad from Online retailer Allegro has gone viral on Youtube. It is about a Polish grandfather grappling with his English vocabulary for a very special reason.
He orders ‘English for Beginners’ from Allegro and starts practising his English, beginning with prepositions and pronouns. His out-of-place declarations on the city bus, movie dialogues in the bath and the way he puts sticky notes with English words all over the place including his dog, are quite funny. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but I assure you this gorgeous little film will surely tug at your heartstrings.
The emotional authenticity of the ad has had many of its viewers in tears and in the comments section, we find that many have commented that it is the only advertisement to have made them cry. This beautifully made three-minute advertisement went viral on YouTube gaining close to 12 million views in the first two weeks alone.
