First Christmas Short Animation

Recently I stumbled across this video that was not only seasonal but got me very emotional.  The transitions in the short film between scenes are done beautifully where the hedgehog maintains the same pose and it highlights the continuity of his loneliness across the many scenarios.  The progression of time from autumn to Christmas was demonstrated very succinctly through the simple bus ride scene.  What is most astonishing is this video was an advertisement for a European financial services company.  The tone set by the film is so uplifting and Christmas spirited and seems to have very little to do with financial services.
