A lola’s love and parols, this ad sure thugs the heartstrings
Family is at the heart of Christmas celebration in the Philippines. And that is what Disney UK highlights in its 2020 Christmas campaign.
Set on the poignant song “Love Is A Compass” by UK-based musician Griff, the three-minute-long video features a story that starts in a 1940s Philippines, with a little girl receiving a Mickey Mouse toy for Christmas.
Fast forward to 2005, the little girl grew up to be a grandmother and passed on that stuffed toy to her granddaughter. However, the girl discards the toy, now old and worn, which her lola gave. After realizing what she has done, the young woman mends the toy and lit up her grandma’s house with parols to surprise her, bringing the Christmas story to a full circle.
“Christmas is a time for giving and giving back, and we’re delighted to debut this festive ad campaign supporting our long-term charity partner Make-A-Wish,” says Tasia Filippatos, SVP Disney EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) in a story by Daily Mail UK.
