I think the ad tried to be interesting, but I doubt anyone will think it is. Full of Christmas cliche's - though wrapped up in nice art direction.

I think stop-motion commercials are to much used!

Yeah. Art Direction is good. Song is catchy. Etc. Etc. …car accounts are the worst. So hard.

Kudos to the (weirdly large) team on this series :)

It's car advertising. It's not original. It hasn't been in a long time. What can ya do?

Visually cute, but 'make the holidays even happier' is hardly a way to push an investment that's second only to a mortgage in its size, and hardly a way to make it sound as long-term as it need be.

I'm also guessing the art director took a day off when the closing shot showed two people cramped together in a tent. Not the best association you want to evoke for a people carrier.
