Netflix has a new ad out called “Holiday Tree Topper,” in which a figure (possibly Mrs. Claus) that sits on top of a Christmas tree watches over a family for 34 years. Some Griswold-like antics occur throughout that time, but everybody’s happy when they’re together watching Netflix. It makes the tree topper smile (though the smile is painted on).
The ad ends with the message: “Netflix: It just might bring everyone together.”
It’s unconfirmed, but most people appear to think actress Lorraine Bracco is the voice of the tree topper.
@CCrum237 Chris, thanks for the writeup on the Netflix ad. I can confirm it's Lorraine Bracco.

We haven’t seen it yet, but Netflix will no doubt have some kind of holiday-themed landing page for people to easily find appropriate content. They did so for Halloween and Thanksgiving both.
With people taking time off work later this month, it would be surprising if Netflix doesn’t see a record month for usage.
