Many companies go big for their Christmas advertising, but not many go as big as bringing E.T. back to Earth.

Steven Spielberg’s loveable, wrinkly little guy makes his return in an ad for US internet company Xfinity, and it even features a grown-up Elliot (Henry Thomas), complete with a  young family of his own.

E.T. soon discovers that tech has moved on a bit since he was last here – although considering his lot have mastered space travel, he’s probably still thinking that we’re a primitive bunch.

Anyway, even if you have a heart of absolute stone, you’re sure to get something in the way of feels from this one.

E.T. at JB.
