Macy’s: Lighthouse

This is a commercial ad of Macy’s. This commercial was released in November 2017 in United States. Under the title of “Macy’s: Lighthouse”.

This is the story of Max, a young boy whose unwavering compassion shines even brighter than the lighthouse near his home. Though he’s never met the family that lives there, there is a little girl who appears to be about his age. Her name is Lily. She recently lost her mom and the holidays just aren’t the same.

Max uses a clever gift to beam a message to Lily, inviting her and her father to join his family for Christmas dinner. Max shows us that while any gift is nice, the perfect gift brings people together. Shop Macy’s Holiday Gift Guide for an expertly edited collection of gifts for everyone on your list.

It was done by BBDO, New York advertising agency. And, the commercial by Production Company is MJZ and is directed by Ian Steve Ayson.

♬Let me be your everlasting light
The sun when there is none
I’m a shepherd for you and I’ll guide you through
Let me be your everlasting light
Macy's Lighthouse
Oh baby can’t you see
It’s shining just for you
Loneliness is over
Dark days are through
They’re through

Let me be your everlasting light
A train going away from pain
Love is the coal that makes this train roll
Let me be your everlasting light
Everlasting light♬
