Un-bear-ably cute. Doris and Edward Bair are the stars in a series of video adverts from Heathrow Airport. They’re along the same lines as the famous Budweiser Clydesdale ads shown at the Superbowl (especially the ones with the labrador puppy — melt my heart). Check out this year’s production. :

If that has you groping for a tissue (sniff, sniff) you’ll want to see 2016 and 2017, too.


The Brits seem to do these animated Christmas videos really well. One of their major department stores, John Lewis (akin to Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s) produced one featuring a penguin that I’ve always loved:

This year’s John Lewis video features Sir Elton John. Wonderful, but the penguin is my favourite. 

I hope everyone had a marvellous Thanksgiving and are now recovered from the glorious excesses. While it’s time to move into full holiday preparation mode, a little pause to watch some heartwarming videos seemed in order.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
