The full-length ad opens with a father and daughter in their house over the holidays, where we quickly learn that the daughter has a special attachment to her prized possession—a snow globe. As the father realizes the snow globe’s importance to his child, he is inspired to do something special.

With a bit of help from the community and Amazon, he creates a life-size version of his daughter’s treasured snow globe in their backyard greenhouse, complete with a teddy bear dressed as a snowman, swirling snow created by shredded recycled paper, and borrowed desk fans, and a mass of magical fairy lights. The big reveal demonstrates a father’s love through his resourcefulness and inventiveness, determined to make his child’s holiday a magical experience.
