Eleven-year-old YouTube sensation Maria Aragon appears in the new GapKids 'I Want Candy' holiday campaign, which launched in the United States with this vibrant and very sweet commercial.

In the video, Winnipeg-born Aragon (who became a star after Lady Gaga tweeted her 'Born This Way' cover) sings the classic hit 'I Want Candy' with five other cute and bubbly little girls. The GapKids 'I Want Candy' commercial is amazingly girlie, cutesy and fun, showcasing Aragon and her friends laughing, dancing and singing in a candy store. They are all dressed in GapKids holiday merchandise, which is -- not surprisingly -- all bright pink.

Gap's holiday commercials are always cheerful, exciting and fun, and the GapKids 'I Want Candy' ad is certainly no different. Stats for Sugary Sweet Holiday Ads Trending: Older & Chilly
