Tortilla chips brand Doritos’ latest ad film is now going viral. The film, which was released in Mexico around Christmas, is based on a true story about a son coming out to his father.

The ad is titled “El mejor regalo” which translates to “the best gift” in Spanish.

In the video, a young student named Javier is seen travelling home during Christmas holidays with his friend Manuel, who did not have anywhere else to spend the holidays. It then goes on to show Manuel, Javier, and his father spending time together when the latter begins to notice that the boys are more than just friends.

In the end, Javier and his father are in the kitchen. While the father tells his son he wants to have a word, he ends up saying “I love you.”

“What you want to tell me is that you love me as I am?” asks Javier, to which his father nods and the two hug. The film concludes with the message: “The best gift for these holidays is accepting everyone the way they are.”
