Christian version of penguin ad goes viral

by Desmond Busteed

The last scene is filmed in St Thomas' Norwich, with Zac Lloyd, 3, playing the part of the little boy.

#TommyTheTiger has already received over 14,100 hits on You Tube since Thursday.

Beej Harris who produced the alternative version for St Thomas' told Premier they decided to make their own ad because they felt the true Christmas message was somewhat lacking in the original, he said:"There was a lot of satisfaction in presents and toys, but we actually wanted to kind of take it back and say that Christmas is about so much more than that.

"The presents and toys and all that stuff is great but actually the real meaning is about Christ and the little boy at the end, he just sees Christ and realises that it's better than everything else."

Beej Harris, St. Thomas', Norwich:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
