A family-run Welsh hardware store has made a viral Christmas advert for just £100 .
The advert features adorable two-year-old Arthur running the store and is a message about shopping at local, independent stories.
The store owner and Arthur's father Tom Jones told Wales Online the video was shot over one day, and the biggest cost was getting permission to use a cover of Alphaville's 1984 hit "Forever Young."
The video has been watched 161,000 times on Facebook so far and some people have even branded it the "best Christmas ad of the year."
