    I saw this the other day. The whole thing is whatever — but, when adult Elliot first sees E.T. again, I actually got a little teary eyed.

    That was pretty cringe-y after around the two minute mark, lol.

    Whoever directed the commercial is a hardcore E.T. fan, as he crammed in everything (except the CGI walkie-talkies) from the film.

    I love this commercial. It was very heartwarming, and since it was a commercial, I wasn’t bothered by all the memberberries moments. Now don’t make a sequel to the movie or remake it. This is good enough. ET visits an adult Elliott and meets his family during the Christmas season and then goes back home. This is pretty much all we need.

    That was very well done. Even bringing Henry Thomas back. I do agree no sequel please but the makers of this ad paid careful attention to the original movie.

    I loved it. LOVED it. I still and always will remember the first time I saw E.T. as a kid and the subsequent mini obsession I had with it, so this reignited something special. I think the only other time I latched onto an alien esque creature the same way was with Gizmo from Gremlins.

    But, yeah, this was great. Seeing Elliot with his family and children that looked damn near identical to him and Drew was one thing, but his elation to see E.T. topped with hearing that music again... man oh man...

    Huh, I was wondering about this. While the reunion between ET and Elliot was a nice, sweet story, I got very distracted by the custom Lego spaceship on the son's nightstand. That's because Lego YouTuber Jangbricks put up a video about a month ago describing his experience doing a Lego commission for some "super secret" production, and that Lego model seemed to be about the size he described. He was also given a very short timeframe to build it, which lead me to believe that it was something non-specific. Something freeform and non-structural that didn't require a lot of engineering work, or he would have turned the task down for being impossible, and that model fit the bill.

    Turns out my hunch was correct:
