Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade TV Commercial, 'Old Friends'

Back in the early days of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a young boy attends with his family and connects with a large Santa balloon floating overhead, who gives him a kindly wink. As the parade marchers pass by, so do the years. Slowly, the boy grows into a man while continuing to attend the parade every year, and every year reuniting with his old friend. Eventually, the now-elderly man is absent from the crowd, and the Santa float looks glumly at the empty space he once occupied behind the barrier. Just when hope seems lost, however, a gust of wind interrupts the procession and lifts the jolly giant above the cityscape. It carries him along past a bridge and toward a pastoral house. Inside, the home-bound man gazes out and exchanges touching looks with Saint Nick, who offers him one final wink before flying off.
