After 37 years, muling nagsama ang dalawang bida ng 1982 Steven Spielberg film na E.T. (The Extra Terrestrial).
Nagkita muli ang loveable alien na si E.T. at ang batang lalake na naging friend niya sa Earth na si Elliot na ginampanan ng former child actor na si Henry Thomas.
Si Elliot ang tumulong kay E.T. na muling ma-contact ang mothership nito para masundo siya at makabalik sa kanilang planeta.
Nag-reunite ang dalawa para sa commercial sa Holiday TV commercial ng Xfinity.
Ayon sa ni-release sa media ng Xfinity:
"We see two kids playing in the snow outside of a house when the holiday lights start to flicker. When the kids, a boy and a girl (much like the movie) go to investigate, they find E.T. hiding behind a snowman.
"Elliott?" E.T. says, believing the young boy is his old friend.
"That's when adult Elliott appears outside behind the kids. When he sees E.T., he runs over and tells him, "You came back!"
"He then introduces E.T. to his loved ones.
"My son," he says. "My family."
"Elliott tells E.T. that "a lot" has changed since he was last there. Elliott's son even introduces E.T. to the internet.
"We then see E.T. join the family for a meal, some fun in the snow, as well as a holiday movie. Later, we see that E.T. is hoping to return home to his own family. So, does he make it back?"
