Amazon holiday ad shows two old friends have a similar problem

The world could certainly use more of this right now.

A new Amazon Prime commercial for the holiday season depicts a friendship between two gentlemen who place themselves on different parts of the religious spectrum.

One man, a priest, meets another, an imam, for tea and both discover they share the problem of bad knees after all the years of getting on their knees for prayer.

They ponder their visit a couple of seconds afterward and then head to their Amazon apps to purchase identical knee braces for each other.

While one might assume the two men are actors, the Telegraph revealed the Christian is Rev. Gary Bradley from London and the Muslim is Zubeir Hassam, a principal of the Muslim School Oadby in Leicestershire, a county in the English Midlands.

Hassam said he was “just being himself” and likes the advertisement’s message.
