Flying can be ‘bearable’

London’s Heathrow Airport has released it first-ever Christmas advertisement and it’s taken the internet by storm – thanks to its two cute stars.

Already attracting over 3 million views and trending on Facebook, this adorable tale follows two old teddies as they head home for a family reunion.

The advertisement shows the bears flying together then landing at Heathrow to collect their bags (which proves a challenge) and then … well, you’ll have to watch and see!

The ad was created by Havas London with animation provided by The Mill and it was filmed over three days at Heathrow Airport while it was fully operational.

“Christmas is my favourite time of year at Heathrow. The airport is abuzz with families and friends reuniting for this special time of year,” says director Jonathan Coen. “We love the film and hope the bears’ journey through the airport captures that excitement you feel when walking through Heathrow arrivals into the arms of your loved ones at Christmas.”

We hope you like it too!
