This Christmas Commercial Is A Tear-jerking Reminder Of Childhood Space Dreams

This Christmas commercial is a tear-jerking reminder of childhood space dreams

Holiday gift ads usually suck, but this one -- a heart-warming reminder of every child's daydreams of space and the man that lives on the moon -- is just too good not to watch.

John Lewis, the British department store that created the video, has a fine track record for heartwarming seasonal ads. Last year it was about this wonderful Calvin and Hobbes-style story about a kid and his penguin. This year's, I think, is better.
