Stockmann "The letter" (2014) 1:00 (Finland)

This might be on of the most touching Christmas ads I've seen in a while. This ad is for Stockmann, which is not only the biggest department store in Helsinki but also a direction marker. I spent some time in Helsinki and whenever I got lost and asked for directions, people would say "Do you know where Stockmann is? Okay, go there and make a left...." The casting is perfect, too.
