E.T returns after 37 years to see his old friend Elliott in Xfinity’s christmas ad for 2019.
In the video, we see E.T land on Earth. He’s not been here since the 80s and a lot has changed since he left. He arrives in Elliott’s back garden, where his kids discover the alien. They’re totally freaked out when they see him, but Elliotts overjoyed to meet his old friend again. He shows him around his house and lets him know that a few things have changed since he was last here.
Elliott’s kids show E.T all kinds of new things, like the internet, VR and also show him a few classic christmas movies. He’s really enjoying his time on Earth, but still wants to go back to see his own family. After a bit of bike flying, E.T finds his spaceship and hitches a ride home. It’s a really lovely ad that takes us back to our childhoods. What’s even sweeter is that the actor who played Elliott in the original film reprises his role in the commercial. Seeing the curious little boy all grown up with his own family is really nice to see.
