In an age of big-budget holiday ad productions, Charlie’s Bar in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, has created a simple and touching Christmas spot that tells a heartwarming story of loneliness and companionship.

The ad starts with an elderly man out walking the streets of Enniskillen, which leads him to Charlie’s Bar where the Yeats quote ‘There are no strangers here, Only friends you haven’t met.”

Released on the bar’s Facebook page, at this writing it has 131k reactions, 5.3K likes, and over 32,000 shares.


 

According to The Guardian, the ad costs £700 to produce. Check it out:
