This commercial about a kid and his penguin melted my heard

I hate holiday gift ads in general, buy especially when we are so far away from those dates. And yet, I can't get myself to hate this ad about a kid and his penguin. Yes. A kid and his penguin, who looks like the real thing even if it's 3D rendering.

What can I say. I was always a sucker for Calvin and Hobbes scenarios—I have a soft spot for kids with imaginary friends.

That is a really sweet (and effective) commercial. I learned the other day that my girlfriend has never read C&H (she grew up in a small town in KY and evidently they didn't have it in the paper) so I'm trying to figure out how to introduce her without tossing the entire anthology in her lap.
