Guys, why are we crying over an Apple ad about Frankenstein?
Who would’ve ever thought that a Frankenstein Christmas commercial would put us right in the feels?! Apple was the mastermind behind this holiday epicness, and we certainly didn’t expect for the ad to hit home as much as it did. We just saw what happens when we embrace one another regardless of differences, and we can’t stop crying!
The commercial features Everybody Loves Raymond’s Brad Garrett as Mary Shelley’s misunderstood monster Frankenstein. It opens with the lonely, and ultra frightening monster gearing up to share some holiday cheer. The gentle giant makes his way to the town’s Christmas celebration, where he’s met with a sweet girl who helps him win over the citizens with a glorious performance.
But, no more spoilers from us! You’ll have to watch the ad for yourself to fill in the missing pieces.
"Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays. 'Cause no matter how far away you roam," joins the townsmen. "When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze. For the holidays you can't beat home, sweet home."
And Apple brilliantly closes the two-minute spot with the sweetest message of all: Open your heart to everyone.
Yeah…we definitely needed this commercial right now more than ever.
