The Telecom Ad From Thailand That Will Move You To Tears
Since its posting on Sept. 11, six days ago, the video has gone viral to say the least. Boasting over 3.7 million views and a slew of positive comments, one of them saying that Hollywood should hire more Thai film makers. Many of the comments simply say "Thank you," to the uploader, TrueMoveH, who made the ad for True Corporation, a communication conglomerate in Thailand.
I'm going to take a page from Wassen's book (it has 20 years of professional writing experience, after all) and ask you, dear viewer, what you think. Is the message tainted by advertising, a medium dedicated to manipulating our emotions in order to buy something--OR--is this a shining example of humanity entering the folds of the industry? Let me know in the comments! I'm curious.
