Sorry, Thanksgiving. The Christmas season is here!

James Corden provides harmonious vocals in Sainsbury's new claymation Christmas commercial, which is so charming and jovial that it will have you wishing for a winter wonderland. The ad follows a man named Dave (voiced by The Late Late Show host) who is juggling his family life, work, errands and more but is unable to find the time to buy his family the perfect Christmas gifts.

"I'd like to spend the time with the ones I love so dear / I'm trying to find the greatest gift I can give my family / I don't have time there's only one of me," Corden sings.

Like any person having to fit in last-minute Christmas shopping, Dave finds himself frustrated at train delays, work disasters, lengthy lines at stores and his boss, who is "twerking inappropriately" at the office party. No matter how hard he tries, the father can't get through it all to get home to his family with presents.

"Tell me how people do it all / I'll never get it done / If only there was a way to be in two places at once," Corden sings.

Dave then comes up with the idea to clone himself so he'll have all the time in the world to spend with his family. "It would all be a breeze with a couple more mes," Corden explains.

While Dave's other versions run off to check his email, go to work, wait in the lines and finish up all the other errands he didn't have time to get done, Dave gets to relax with his wife and kids. "I wanna find the greatest gift I can give my family / The greatest gift that I can give is me," he ends the song.

The end of the claymation ad reminds everyone, "Christmas is for sharing."
