This Christmas Commercial From A Local Hardware Store Is Warming Hearts

It's hard not to get emotional watching this sweet Christmas ad.

The ad stars little Arthur, at just 2 years old he's reminding everyone to be a kid at Christmas. He is the son of Tom Jones who runs family-owned Haford Hardware in Rhayader, Wales and says he's been making seasonal ads and posting them online for the last 3 years, but this year the response has been overwhelming. As of today, December 5th, the ad has almost 500,000 views on YouTube.

Jones and his best friend took care of filming and editing, and shelled out a mere $130 dollars for a sound engineer to mix the soundtrack for the ad-- a dreamy version of Alphaville's 1984 hit "Forever Young." Not too shabby for a time where big businesses are putting millions into holiday advertising.
