Is this the best advert of all time?

Sainsburys (the supermarket) have released this outstanding Christmas advert, which is set in the trenches during Christmas 1914 – World War One.

This advert is based on a true story. If you listen to the German soldier at 1:30 minutes, you will hear him shout “Er ist nicht bewaffnet”, which is German for “He isn’t armed”. On 25th December 1914 English and German soldiers fighting in the trenches put their weapons down and payed football on no man’s land.
