Watch: SuperValu releases Christmas Ad

I'm not crying, you are.

SuperValu has released its Christmas advert this year and it's bringing tears to a lot of people across the country.

The festive video centres around a young girl named Aoife who finds an injured reindeer.

Aoife spends her time nursing the animal back to health to ensure that he's back in time for his big delivery with Santa on 25th December.

Although her parents didn't believe the magic the reindeer had, the little girl was determined to help Deermuid return to Santa and the other reindeers.

According to The Irish Examiner, the deer who stars in the new ad was abandoned in real life when he was young and grew up on a farm in Co. Wicklow.

β€œDeermuid is nine years old and absolutely loves people. He was sadly abandoned by his mother as a fawn, but this meant he was bottle-fed and grew up on a farm, making him extremely sociable and comfortable with humans" Deermuid’s deer handler, Eddie Drew explained.
