Coca-Cola has released a new Christmas commercial that will warm your heart like a roasted fire.

  • The commercial tells the story of a man who leaves home before holidays to work on an offshore rig. His daughter asks him to bring a letter to Santa. So, he goes on a journey through forests, over the sea and across land to bring it to Santa.
  • The commercial ends on a twist — the Christmas wish was for the father to return home.

BREAK ME.

The new advertisement comes from Taika Waititi, director of an untitled “Star Wars” project and “The Mandalorian.”

Watch below.

Not surprising that this breaks your heart

Waititi recently won best adapted screenplay for “Jojo Rabbit” at the Academy Awards. He also directed the first season finale episode of “The Mandalorian,” which was a tearjerker in itself (if you know, you know).

Disney also tapped Waititi to direct a new “Star Wars” film.
