Fair warning – grab the tissues!
McDonald’s just released a new Christmas ad and it is going to have you crying like a newborn baby…
McDonald’s U.K. introduced a 2021 Christmas commercial called “Imaginary Iggy” set to (quelle surprise) a piano-ballad cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and it’s quite emotional.
The commercial finds a young girl, Matilda, as she meets her imaginary friend, Iggy. Young Matilda draws her bestie, and he immediately comes to life.
After feeding him what appears to be a UK McDonald’s side dish of “reindeer treats” (carrot sticks), the two become best friends, and they set out to enjoy the holiday season.
Just like with any child, Matilda grows up and decides she no longer needs her friend Imaginary Iggy.
You know what, I don’t want to ruin it too much for you, just watch it below. And remember, bring the tissues…
