You probably don’t expect your supermarket advertisements to leave you in a hot, bubbling pool of your own tears, but that’s exactly what German supermarket chain Edeka has in store for you with this commercial. After all, it’s the holiday season: Even the most mundane things can inspire the warm, emotional fuzzies. In this commercial, an old man is disappointed to learn that his large family won’t be coming home for the holidays. After having one-too-many lonely dinners without his loved ones, the old man passes away, causing his children to rush home for his funeral. What happens next is pretty shocking — but the final message of the commercial will start the waterworks flowing.
