British department store John Lewis is famed for its Christmas adverts - and this year's version carries on the retailer's tradition of heartwarming tales.
Titled 'The Beginner,' the advert - which is set to a cover of Blink-182's 'All The Small Things' by Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox - focuses on a middle-aged man struggling to get to grips with skateboarding.
It's not clear why he's putting himself through this ... until the end of the ad when there's a knock at the door and we get the big reveal.
Accompanied by a woman holding a folder, a young, nervous-looking girl is at the door, skateboard in hand.
She spots the man's skateboard in the hallway and he gestures to his bandaged wrist.
"Oh, I skate a bit too," he smiles.
The ad then tells us that over 108,000 children in the UK are in the care system and that John Lewis is committing to supporting the futures of young people from care by working with Action for Children and Who Cares? Scotland.
We're not crying. You're not crying.
