– Let’s make a snowman. – Can’t now honey. – Dad? – Sorry kiddo. – Wanna make a snowman? – Uh, I can’t see. (door creaking) (clock ticking) (gasps) (cogs moving) – What? (door creaking) Wow. (magical music) Hey. What is this place? – Welcome Sam. You’re right on time. – You know me? – Of course, you wanna
make a snowman right? – How did you– (springs boing) Hey, what’s that? – That’s lost time. And then there’s time that flies. – Whoa. – Ah, Together Time. The best kind. It can make memories that last forever. – I wish my family could understand. – Here, sometimes people
just need a little reminder. – [Mom] Sam, where are you? – Time to go Sam. – Thank you. – My pleasure. – Mom, dad, guess what? Cats took me to a Time Shop. – What happened?

    As much as I appreciate the message in this short, the most prominent feeling I had when watching this was worry. This was eerily similar to Coraline, so I fully expected her to have to fight off attempts to give her glass eyes or something.
    Other than that, this was cute and well animated.

    As of late I have been astounded by how much people are addicted to technology, myself included. It is nice to see that someone is spreading the message that we need to spend less time on our phones and more time with family. We love you, Chick-fil-A!

  • Reply Ryan Sinclair November 28, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    May God bless Chick Fil A for striving to remind people about the gift of valuing family and friends. Thanksgiving is a time to give God thanks for the blessings of family and Christmas reminds us of the Advent of Christ and heaven’s love for the people of Earth. This commercial had me in tears. It reminds me of CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

    ‘Probably the greatest gift that God has given any one of us is the power that we have to change people’s lives by what we do,’ What CFA supports now ends lives before they begin. Cool cartoons will disguise that for some, but as for me and my house…

    Why have you abandon Christian values, supporting traditional marriage isn't hateful, you are falling into they ways of the world. Calling good bad and bad good, sweet bitter and bitter sweet, you running on a sandy foundation, and you went for anti Christian organizations. Your old values weren't hateful at all, by abandoning your old values, you are drifting farther away from the light.
