You might not be aware of it, because for us in the western world it might be kind of strange, but there are lots of commercials and ads made in Asia that have a very strong message with a tear-inducing delivery. Thailand is known as the master country of this particular type of video; many Thai ads have gone viral in the past.
We now present to you another one of them, and it really is at another level. If you’re a dog lover like me, brace yourself, and better grab some napkins, too.
The ad is for the Krungthai Bank, and it presents the story of a girl who grew up to be a veterinary doctor. She thinks back to the time when she was afraid of Olieng, the dog who lived next door. It looks like he is violent and fierce, but the reality is that he’s a sad dog who only wants to protect her mom. After the elder woman who took care of him was taken away from illness, the girl decides to feed him and to take care of him.
They become friends, but what happened next really made me bawl in sadness. It’s too beautiful for me to spoil it. Watch the video just below.
