Donald Duck Magazine "The duck and the boy" (2016) 2:00 (Finland)

Finland is a huge Donald Duck fan. So much so that one million Finns read Aku Ankka, Donald Duck Magazine, every week. Most Finns grew up learning how to read with Donald Duck so it's a big deal.
What also is a big deal is how this film really captures the emotional attachment to that magazine without showing the character himself. It's a surprisingly moving spot with a bit of a heartwarming ending, too. The end line, translated, means "never grow up."

Dammit, are the finns competing with the Thai om the kleenex warning ads now? That was some good duck acting.
