POLAND: Auction Site Goes Globally Viral With Holiday Ad Depicting Elderly Man Learning English [VIDEO]

You may need a tissue for this. The Independent reports:

A Polish Christmas advert, which has been viewed more than two-and-a-half million times, about a grandfather learning English is melting hearts worldwide. The advert, released by online auction website Allegro, starts with the elderly man receiving an “English For Beginners” audio set from the website.

He then sets about becoming fluent, by putting stickers on household objects and reciting phrases out loud. The advert shows the man reciting English during a series of amusing scenes – including saying “I love you” to a surprised woman sitting on the bus in front of him. The advert culminates in the real reason the man decided to pick up a new language.
