I like the whole set-up. It's beautifully filmed and the music is nice.

When the line is delivered you find yourself going, erm no, not really wanting a gift from Staples.

I'm in London. As far as I know its a stationery store.

Made me laugh, I couldn't understand why those people have so much excitement over a staple... for heaven sake how tech can it get... (well we don't have staples in Israel - yet)

THERE'S NO HEAVIER BURDEN THAN A GREAT POTENTIAL

Somehow like it, but why should you do a rehearsal, if the gifts from Staples are that great? Emotions should come out automatically...

Nice. Although I think it would have been better without the slo-mo.

lumps of coal for all the people in the ad, just not feeling it.

Decent idea. Beautifully shot. terrible copy and announcer.
Some of the acting are too over the top. Didn't need that exaggeration.
