The Microsoft holiday ad 2019 boasts an family-friend plot and tells the story of curious 6-year-old Lucy and her new reindeer friends. It starts by showing her mother busy speaking to colleagues from Japon using the cutting edge Microsoft Translator.
Little Lucy grows restless playing alone and decides to go exploring with her beloved dog. She then makes a magical discover -- reindeers. Lucy uses her mom's Microsoft Translator to ask them all her most pertinent questions, such as "what do they do in the summer" and "how do you fly?" The commercial ends with a text-over stating: “Happy Holidays in 60+ languages. Reindeer isn’t one of them. Yet.”
The Microsoft holiday ad 2019 is able to capture the magical spirit of Christmas while showcasing the tech company's latest gadget.
