Watch the commercial spot for German supermarket Edeka, where we see a man spend many holiday seasons alone, as his children tell him they can't make it home.
The image of the man alone is sad in itself. But then...each of his children are notified that their father has died. It's a total one-two punch.
But they're not done...the children come home dressed in black to discover...he had faked his death! His reason for the rather sneaky prank? "How else could I have brought you all together?," he tells them.
It all ends well, thankfully. But wow, what a roller-coaster of emotions.
