A touching Christmas commercial with the British singer Elton John (71) has become the Klickhit on the Internet.
The nearly two and a half minute Video, made by a British Department store chain on Thursday on YouTube, has been viewed within one day, more than four million Times. The enthusiastic Tweet by presenter James Corden, who shared the Clip came to around seven million views.
The Video starts by saying that Elton John is seated to Christmas at his piano, and then shows in the downstream of the scenes set his career backwards, accompanied with the Hit “Your Song”. At the end you can see how the little Elton gets a Christmas gift from his mother: It is the piano on which John sits to the beginning of the clip. “Some gifts are more than just a gift,” he says at the end.
“Wonderful! For a very very long time not so touching Spot, more seen,” wrote a user on Twitter. Another said: “I would like to know how many kids this Christmas will get a piano.”
