"Zipfel Rausch" is the funniest TV ad coming out of Germany.

Forget the British John Lewis Christmas ad, the must-see Christmas commercial of 2017 is from Germany. Media Markt, the "Best Buy of Europe", released Zipfel Rausch, a mixed reality 3D animated short film starring garden gnomes and a cat.

You know an ad is going to be good when the first scene shows a cat vomiting on a garden gnome. A horde of garden gnomes unites and enters a house decked out with the latest consumer electronics. Reason enough for the lawn gnomes to start the wildest party imaginable. Music, alcohol, lewd behaviors, the Garden Gnomes have no barrier.

The dwarfs also fill up the cat with vodka, shave it and put it on the robot vacuum. The Zipfel Rausch commercial is hilarious to watch multiple times and has gone viral in Germany. Media Markt launched the ad in thousands of movie theaters. The 1:37 minute Zipfel Rausch (rough translation: "Tip Intoxication") video has garnered close to 4 million views in the past few days. Watch the funniest Christmas 2017 commercial below.

British animation studio The Mill are behind the Zipfel Rausch film. Their previous work includes special effects for Harry Potter movies and Gladiator.
