The Best Way to Get Family Home For The Holidays…Fake Your Death
Article originally appeared on BuzzFeed
German supermarket company Edeka recently released their 2015 holiday ad, and it has one of the most unexpected plot twists of all time
The ad begins with a little old man getting the news that his family won’t make it to Christmas, so he spends the holiday ALONE.
In a depressing turn of events, he DIES and his family is left to cope with the news of his death.
They all reunite at his place to honor his life…
…But PLOT TWIST, LOL JK he’s not dead — he just wanted to see his family.
Because there’s nothing that says “great holiday dinner” like faking your own death.
Needless to say, people were all sorts of confused, happy, sad, and angry.
