Eight Surprisingly Touching Commercials


It’s been quite the week for touching commercials, between the now-famous Google ad and the absolutely amazing seat belt ad I featured recently.  This inspired me to try and find past examples of other ads that pulled on the heartstrings, and I have to say, it was pretty damn hard to find some. Maybe my searching skills were off, but I only found a handful of truly good ones, and for some reason, the best ones are all Thai, as in, from Thailand. I guess they know their drama over there. Those are the best ones I believe, and it’s amazing how much emotion they can cram into a minute and a half. See “My Son” for a prime example of this.

Check out the best ones I could find below, and let me know if you think I missed any, and I’ll post them at the end if they’re worthy.
