2020 is winding down (thank God), and the holidays are among us. It’s been a hard year, there’s no way around it, but hopefully you can find some degree of holiday cheer. With lockdowns in various places, it’s also caused a lot of people to have a lot of free time they probably never expected to actually have. Microsoft is hoping you’ll find one of their many items for that time in a new holiday commercial highlighting several products and a pair of dogs out to murder Master Chief.

The commercial, which you can see below, isn’t solely focused on gaming, but does include what appears to be a Xbox Series S controller as someone games on a TV and then someone gaming on a laptop. A pair of roaming dogs go around the house to see their family using various Microsoft products. They then dream of using said products and being in games which include Minecraft and Halo. It takes something of a dark turn when the dogs betray Master Chief and bring a grenade back to him that he just threw at his enemies, then run off. Chief looks at the camera in, presumably, shock. We don’t see the explosion, this being a family commercial and all, and Chief probably escaped alive, but definitely odd.

You can find all of the products highlighted in the video at any major retailer, at least for those in stock. The Xbox Series X/S, for instance, is expected to have stock storages into early 2021, so your mileage will vary.
