Microsoft's 2019 Holiday Ad translates reindeer for a little girl

Microsoft's holiday advertisements are always pretty heartwarming. There was the one back in 2015, when employees from the Microsoft Store on Fifth Ave in New York City walked down to the Apple Store and sang Christmas carols. Last year, it was a video, where a kid runs out of the house screaming, "He's gonna do it!" After collecting all of his friends, he shows up at someone's house to see someone beating a game with the Xbox Adaptive Controller.

Today, Microsoft released the 2019 Holiday Ad. It starts off with a little girl and her dog looking out the window, and then shows the little girl's mother on a video call using a Surface Pro X and Microsoft Translator to talk to someone from Japan. Realizing that the Pro X has the ability to translate, the little girl grabs her mother's PC off of the Surface Keyboard and runs out of the house, far enough away that only a PC with 4G LTE connectivity would work.

She runs to talk to a pair of reindeer, and asks if they can understand her. In the magic of the holiday season, they do. Then for a bit of comic relief, she starts rattling off questions in the way that you'd expect a child to do.
