Microsoft 2018 Holiday Ad: Reindeer Games | Featuring Owen and The Xbox Adaptive Controller

4775 ratings | 428589 views
For the 2018 holiday season, we invite you to meet nine (and a half)-year-old Owen, rising to the top of his game with the support of all of his friends-including his real-life best friend Gunnar-and a little help from the Xbox Adaptive Controller. Owen has Escobar Syndrome, which limits his mobility, but does nothing to reduce his passion for gaming.  We watch as his friends gather to cheer him on as word spreads of his impending achievement. The moment of joy experienced by the children celebrating together when Owen wins the game reminds us of the spirit of the holiday season and illustrates Microsoft’s overall mission to create accessible technology that levels the playing field and creates opportunity for all of us.  Because, when everybody plays, we all win. Learn more at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/empowering/ Audio description version: https://youtu.be/1-0NA1ILdVE   Music set to a unique adaptation of the holiday classic “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”.

Reminds me of when I was a kid and me and all my neighborhood buddies would run back and forth to each others house. Great memories.

What I love about this product is that it is clear that it is a loss product. The R&D, marketing, and manufacturing costs don't come close to be covered by the price tag. But it matches so close to the mission of Microsoft overall that they don't care. Sometimes is makes sense to lose money.

Is it just me or are there not a lot of people talking about this controller? I was very excited for the controller, thankfully I don't need to use it myself, but it's still a really cool device. But I don't hear anybody talking about it which is a shame

I wonder what game Owen was playing? Anyways, let's hope someone in that room someday makes it possible for Owen and others like him become even more mobile.

I am not disabled, but I feel an obligation to say I am so happy that Xbox and Microsoft released this. I have grown up with gaming, Xbox especially. This adaptive controller is so inspiring. Yes its for gaming but it also represents inclusiveness and connectedness for people of all abilities and circumstances. I'm crying after watching this and seeing other people use it. It is so heartwarming and tearjerking. This controller represents hope for all people. I can't wait for more people to use this and be able to game in a way that is effective and enjoyable for them. Thank you Xbox, thank you Microsoft. <3

I'm a formally all-american, collegiate, D1 linebacker and this commercial brought me to tears because it illustrates the real meaning of community. Owen is my dude! And the kid that does the floss at the end was awesone. Owen even got his groove on! I love it!

This made me cry. As a kid, I couldn't play video games thanks to my disability. I was 12 before I had enough motor skill development to even try, and by then I was so embarrassed that I gave up immediately. To see this kid succeed and be celebrated is beautiful.

I just LOVE❤ your 2018 Holiday's "Reindeer Games" commercial! I do believe it's one of your better ones that you have advertised! What makes it so great is, it shows how children should be towards one another, whether you are a normal kid or you have a disability! The kids all rallied around for this neighborhood kid that has a disability but could beat a difficult video game! At least that's how I saw it! GREAT JOB Y'ALL! I'm from Oklahoma so I had to put in that "y'all"!🤣🤣🤣❤ Thanks for a very good "feel good" commercial!👍❤🤗🛵
