McDonald’s new Christmas advert is sure to leave you feeling emotional, with some fans of the fast food restaurant being left in tears.

After what has been already a difficult year for many due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, McDonald’s has left us reaching for the tissues.

The new 90 second advert shows a single mother trying to encourage her teenage son to embrace his inner child over Christmas.

However, young Tom is more interested in playing computer games and declines spending time with his mother.

The advert hits an emotional note with the mother attempts to make her son laugh by putting on some festive reindeer ears while out shopping, but leaves him storming off with his headphones on.

The duo then visit the McDonald’s drive-thru where the boy is slightly perked up by getting his favourite meal, notably saving the carrot sticks from his order.

The mum and son then have a sweet snowball fight before cuddling up on the sofa, with the mother being left emotional at Tom finally spending his time with her and away from his gadgets.
