Most of you know my unending love for this Gorgeous, Beautiful, Everything Christmas Advert. I believe it's the BEST Ad ever made (no seriously. Ever.) And it is, in my 'umble opinion, the best video on Youtube. (Not even an overstatement.) Gahhh. I adore this video. I've seen it about Frigillion times, and still it makes me sniff and cry and smile and griiiiin. I just LOVE it. To biiiits.
I remember watching it for the first time. This was my reaction to it.
0:01 - Oh! It's set in 1914. Oh look, it's the trenches. OH WAIT. IS THIS ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE.
0:04 - What an unappetizing biscuit. They're not trying to sell that - don't tell me.
0:08 - Oh, the post. I love letters. That boy looks ridiculously young to be in the trenches.
0:13 - Awww, it's a package from his sweetheart. ("Rose, her name is.") Nice picture - I like the Edwardian style of the dress.
0:16 - AHH. ZEE CHOCOLATE. That is what they're trying to sell. Now I know.
0:17 - Look at his adorable grin. He's adorable.
0:21 - Oh, hark! He hears something. I KNOW WHAT IT IS. IT'S SILENT NIGHT. *listens quietly*
0:29 - Yes! It's the Germans singing Silent Night.
0:38 - Ahhhh. Shivers are already coming up my spine, for the English and the Germans are singing it together. It's just so saaaad and happy.
0:43 - Oh, that guy is handsome. I love the way his eyes twinkle.
0:58 - They're all singing with great gusto now and it's amazing.
1:06 - The snow is so pretty. (I wish I would snow right now, by the way. I'm tired of having no snow - I haven't had a good layer of snow for such a weary long time.)
1:10 - Hello, Mr Robin.
1:12 - I love his lopsided GRIIIIN. He looks so much like Robbie in 'Violins of Autumn.'
1:15 - WAIT. What is he thinking? Why is he rubbing his hands?????
1:17 - HE'S DOING IT. azguuzhreuhu.
1:20 - "A Brit is coming!" Wait they can't shoot him. No, they won't shoot him. No, it's Christmas.
1:26 - THE HANDSOME GERMAN SAVES HIM. He saves his life peoples. "Halt! Es ist nicht bewaffnet!" (Which means; Stop! He's not armed!)
1:34 - He's going over toooooo. Stop itttt guys this is way to sad.
1:42 - GAHH. They're walking towards each-other and I'm starting to cry and OHHH. The piano music starts and they're so scared and happy and pit^rutareu;
1:47 - I love these boys.
1:49 - They're putting their hands down - they're all walking closer. STOP IT. I AM CRYING.

1:57 - PLEASED TO MEET YOU OTTO. Shut up all of you darling boys this is way to emotional for me.
2:01 - They're taking pictures together. All the happy faces together. Germans and Englishmen arm in arm. *bawls*

2:08 - NOW THEY'RE GOING TO PLAY FOOTBALL TOGETHER. NO I AM NOT CRYING. I JUST HAVE A TERRIBLE COLD OKAY.
2:10 - His smile breaks my heart.
2:15 - I love that a German is shaving an Englishman (or vice-versa, I can't tell).

3:12 - AND NOW I AM STILL CRYING BECAUSE I SEE THE WORDS CHRISTMAS IS FOR SHARING. What a beautiful, simple, deep message. I don't even have the words for this video people I just don't. I am crushed for life and in love with both Otto and Jim I can't choose.
Gah. This video really knows how to tug at my heartstrings and rip my heart apart. Everyone should see it. EVERYONE. I love it to death.
