Guinness and Gum

wheelchairsThanks to TiVo, I don’t watch TV commercials while watching TV. However, every now and then I see people sharing a commercial on social media. If a commercial is so good that people are actually taking the time to share it (and probably watch it more than once), I have to take a look and tip my cap to the brilliant marketers that created it.

Today I have two such commercials. They both speak to me in different ways, but I think they’re both worth sharing. What do you think? Have you seen any commercials as touching or as compelling as these lately?

  1. Thanks for sharing both of those videos! Since I also do not watch commercials, chances are I would have missed out on them, too.
    I wish you had a warning on the gum one though, that it might cause tears to be shed. The last commercial I can remember making me have such an emotional response to was the Google Hangout “Jess Time” from last year. I mistakenly just watched that one again to share the link, and now I’m pretty sure the cats and dog think I’m crazy for crying in front of my laptop screen. 🙂
