McDonald’s has finally released its Christmas advert – but fans of the fast food chain were not prepared for the emotional response they would have.
This festive advert, which is part of McDonald’s #ReindeerReady campaign, is a real tear-jerker. So bring out the pack of tissues.
Titled Inner Child, the ad features an emotional and sadly familiar story which is guaranteed to pull your heartstrings
It also includes a spine-tingling version of the song Forever Young from singing sensation Becky Hill.
It’s an animated, modern-day festive tale which tells the heart-warming story of a mother desperately trying to encourage her teenage son to put his phone down and take part in their family rituals in the lead-up to Christmas.
The story will resonate with both parents and children, as the teenager faces an inner battle many struggle with when they grow up.
McDonald’s fans shared their reaction to the advert on social media – with the consensus being that there were many tears.

One person said: “I don’t usually get emotional over Christmas ads but with my youngest boy being 11 and just started secondary school this really strikes a chord.”
Another added: “Was I prepared to cry? No. Did I just cry like a child? Yes. Beautiful advert.”
Michelle Graham-Clare, Vice President, Menu and Marketing said: “Our heart-warming tale of Tom and his mum aims to reignite the magic of Christmas across the UK and Ireland this winter.
“That moment as the pair reconnect over the reindeer treats, saved from their trip through the Drive Thru, represents the common truth of children determined to grow up but swept up by the festive spirit.”

Becky Hill’s version of the iconic Forever Young will also no doubt get the goose-bumps going.
As part of McDonald’s campaign, the fast food restaurant pledges to fund 4million meals to FareShare.
Together with the donation before October half term, that means the restaurant company will help redistribute over 5million meals to those in need.
Becky’s stripped back version of Forever Young is available to download now, with the singer giving 10p from every download to FareShare.
McDonald’s Christmas advert will makes its TV debut during the first episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Sunday, November 15.
