Looking for something to warm your heart on this cold and snowy December day? Look no further.

Making a strong, and unlikely, case for the Christmas commercial of the year is Polish auction website Allegro, which has come up with this tale of language learning.

It centers on an elderly Polish man who takes deliveries of "English for Beginners" and sets about picking up the language.

You might be able to guess the reason why, but it doesn't make the end any less tear-inducing.

Take a look above (we should warn you, unusually, that this commercial contains swearing).
