Apple launched a new holiday TV ad this week that is also going viral online.

The ad features a teenage boy who appears to be engrossed in his iPhone during the entire duration of a holiday gathering with his family. But at the end of the 90 second commercial, he surprises his family with a beautifully crafted homemade video that captured the baking, sledding, hugging, tree-decorating and other tender moments that played out over the course of the previous few days.

The commercial, which was set to the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," both tugs at the heartstrings and shows off the iPhone's spiffy video-making capabilities.

Apple posted the ad to their YouTube page on Monday and it has amassed nearly 3.4 million views as of Thursday afternoon.
