Best Holiday Commercial Music from 2016

‘Twer the weeks before Christmas and all though the air, adverts were clamoring for increased market share.

A new electronic here, a big red bow there, truly moving displays of affection were rare.

But what to our cynical hearts did we see? A bouncing boxer,  not-so-scary monster and thoughtful giving, set to Einaudi.

For wonderful music transcends selling and branding, to help fill us all with love, joy and understanding.

Take a look at a few of the holiday commercials of 2016 whose message and music melted our cold little hearts.
