(WTVM) – Online retailer Amazon hopes to bring a little joy to the world after what some would call a rough year with its new holiday advertisement.

In the ad, which looks to bridge the gap between religions, a priest invites an imam over for a cup of tea and meaningful conversation.

When both friends go to sit down and stand up, you can see the physical struggle of age as both clench their knees and grimace in pain

As the imam leaves the priests’ home, both grab their phones and place an order on the Amazon app.

Days later, both men receive a package from Amazon as they find out that each bought each other knee braces.

Both men put on their gift and can kneel for prayer pain-free.
