Download the full track from: Amazon & iTunes.
This festive new commercial from Toys R Us uses a song titled ‘Making All Things New’. The track is performed by the 34-year-old American singer-songwriter Aaron Espe.
If your wondering why you’ve never heard this tune before, that’s probably because the Minnesota-based musician only released the brand-new song for download on October 23, 2015.
Posted rather early for a festive advert, the above ‘Christmas Tree’ holiday video was added to the Toys”R”Us YouTube channel just prior to the songs release, on October 20, 2015.
The story of the commercial sees a young boy and girl feeling sorry for a lonely-looking elderly neighbour. To try and cheer the gentleman up, and show him there are people thinking of him, the kids set up a Christmas tree with lights in his front yard.
Despite initially appearing unimpressed with the kids efforts, the man later writes them a thank you note and even manages to raise a smile. The ad finishes with the slogan ‘Light Up Someone’s Christmas’ and ‘Toys R Us Awwwesome’.
Watching the video, I can’t help but notice the similarity in theme to this years John Lewis ‘The Man on the Moon’ UK advert, which also makes the point of reaching out to socially isolated senior citizens. I should point out though that this Toys R Us film was released a couple of weeks before John Lewis’ effort.
