A Polish online auction website has released a Christmas advert called English for Beginners and, boy, do the emotions get all too real.

Allegro’s ad is about a grandpa from Poland who we find out is desperately learning English before he visits his family, including his adorable little granddaughter, in London.

And since the clip went on YouTube, it has had over 4 million views.

People can’t cope with how teary they got watching it.

You see, the grandfather tries to brush up on his keywords in all sorts of places, which is just so adorable.

There’s also a cute dog in the advert, which is when you know you’re on to a winner, surely.

The moment when the grandfather arrives at his destination in London is already too emotional.

Then comes the bit when he sees his granddaughter – and says “Hi, I’m your grandpa”.

Well, Allegro, you’ve officially just won Christmas.

(We’re sorry if anyone now has a blotchy face from crying).
