Be my guest.

Lidl: “Elf” - 1 min 45s

Lidl Finland's Christmas film stars an unexpected house guest. Having presumably stowed away on Santa's sleigh, an elf crash-lands outside this girl's home. Fortunately, she's an expert host.

Despite multiple kitchen raids, her parents remain oblivious to their elven guestÖ but not for long. Just when it looks like the girl's place on the naughty list is sealed, her friend repays the favour.

It may be too sweet for some tastes, but Rattling Stick's Pete Riski ensures a charming outcome. The supermarket's festive range is also well served.. Watching parents may wish to lock the treats cupboard, though.
