The adorable extra-terrestrial from Steven Spielberg’s 1982 iconic “E.T.” has met with Elliott, actor Henry Thomas, in a beautiful new commercial from Comcast Xfinity.
The four-minute advertisement aired on Thanksgiving and shows E.T. coming back to Earth, and reconnecting with his best friend, Elliott.
Elliott introduces E.T. to his wife and two kids and invites him into his house and new life. They play in the snow, watch movies, eat cupcakes with Reese’s Pieces (E.T.’s favorite), and even go on a bike ride across the moon.
But then, it’s time for E.T. to go back home — and he breaks our hearts once again.
