Back in 2014, Phil Beastall had the idea to take the corporate voices out of Christmas.

And in doing so, he created a touching piece to behold just in time for the holidays...


The video only took £50 ($64) to make and has garnered a more emotional response than most major blockbusters in the UK since 2014.

Watch Phil's video here:


Beastall also shared it on YouTube and his Twitter account.


People reacted to the emotional, yet simple "ad."






Phil has been taken aback by the reaction.

He shared:

"The reaction has blown me away. Seeing as it didn't really go very far in 2014, I presumed the same would happen this year."
"But within a few days, we were into the millions of views. I have received so many positive comments from people saying how beautiful they think the film is."
"It's been shared over 150,000 times and it's that stat that means the most to me. The fact that people are taking the time to not only watch my film but share it with their friends and family."
"I've been making videos and films for over 10 years and I would love to partner with leading brands to help tell their story with emotive films."





The video's story touched so many and has had such a prolific response that Phil posted a "thank you" video to facebook four years after making the original video.


And people continue to be moved by this short film in 2018.











And the video continues to catch fire.


Hopefully the video can continue touching lives by spreading a message of love and appreciation for what we have before it is gone.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"
