Creatures great and small love a Garmin gift

Garmin's new holiday ads are stuffed with oddballs: a knight in a station wagon, a leprechaun triathlete, a yeti with a teddy, a golfing Scot and (the real star of the show) a squirrel jamming on a tiny mandelin. And that's just the first spot above. As in past years, the spots feature a choir singing reworked versions of the Christmas classic "Carol of the Bells." The lyrics are a bit hard to make out at times, though perhaps that will make for more attentive second viewings. Expect to hear more from the creatures, especially the "in-house yeti," throughout the season on the Garmin blog.
