    Really a life insurance commercial ?


    It was going to make me cry until I saw it was an ad. This commercial got me mad instead. Good job.

    Did not make me cry. Manipulation does not always work. Sorry, they can play the insipid music and the kids and the sad daddy stuff, and it will work on some people, but in the end they are selling crap to idiots.

    Yeah it's supposed to tug at your heartstrings to entice you to buy. I don't care--I just returned from the cemetery an hour ago with my mom--the first Father's Day without my dad. Yeah--I cried.

    It's perception...Perhaps the daughter is ashamed of her father.
    Perhaps she is being teased and bullied because of it. Perhaps she never learned to communicate well with her father through signing--I didn't see any indication on her part in the video. No relationship is perfect--but no matter what was going on, that dad was there 150% for his child.

    If I understand correctly, in Thailand, isn't the concept of losing face of significant value? And so perhaps there is still a greater stigma attached to being differently abled there.

    So then what is the difference between their advertising forces utilizing mass media to alter the fabric of their culture, and why denounce that, when our subculture here in the USA cheers product selling advertisements which feature gay topics in favorable light, altering the fabric of our own culture too?

    Condolence to Garyinla on this day difficult for you.
