See the Dark and Controversial Christmas Ad From Germany That Has Everyone Talking

How far would you go for family time?


Here’s a candidate for either the saddest, or the most ridiculous, Christmas ad of 2015.

This repeat offense is deftly illustrated with shots of the man sitting at a solo place setting, as tree decorations and outfits morph around him.
