  • We’ve already seen a wave or nostalgic Christmas adverts that have got us excited for the Christmas holidays.

    From John Lewis’ bouncing Boxer dog to James Corden singing for Sainsbury’s, it’s been an impressive year for festive adverts.

    But now Heathrow Airport have revealed its first ever Christmas advert, which focuses on the magic of travelling home for Christmas to see your family.

    The advert follows an adorable elderly teddy bear couple making their way home for the holiday, and trying to navigate their way through Heathrow airport.

    With the Chas and Dave song I’m Coming Back playing throughout, it’s definitely one that’s got us excited to see our family this Christmas!

    It starts with the teddy bears, ‘Mr and Mrs Bair’, getting off the plane, and follows them as they go through immigration, jump on the escalators and also get help when struggling to lift their suitcases.

    Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the airport without a quick look in the duty-free shops. However, Mr Bair managed to make a bit of a mess when he pulled the box of biscuits from the bottom of the pile…

    But eventually the teddy bears make it to the arrival lounge. For a moment you’re terrified no one’s there to greet them. However, as a young girl and boy run towards the couple, in the last few moments we see the bears transform into people and give their grandchildren a massive hug.

    Heathrow’s commercial director Jonathan Coen said in a statement: ‘We love the film and hope the bears’ journey through the airport captures that excitement you feel when walking through Heathrow arrivals into the arms of your loved one at Christmas’.

    With the final few seconds showing the caption: ‘Coming Home The Best Gift Of All’, it’s definitely an ad that tugs at the heartstrings and has officially made us even more excited for Christmas!
