This Stirring Thai Commercial Shows Us What Unconditional Love Looks Like

A very emotional must watch ad with an unexpected twist.

Generally, parents work hand in hand to meet all their children’s needs including those that money can’t buy. In traditional families, the dad is the breadwinner for the family while the mom supports her husband and ensures that everything is well with the kids and at home.

It’s not an easy task, and it’s even more difficult for those who have to raise their kids alone. Usually, the one who’s left to care for the child has to fill the role of both—acting as the mother and the father at the same time. Some people are not even aware of the sacrifices they have to make for their children, while others would probably say they didn’t ask for it. However, the fact remains that our parents do so because they love us, and they want to give us a better life.

People say we wouldn’t understand what unconditional love truly means until we become parents ourselves. They say there’s no boundary – no limit to how much they’d be willing to do for their kid. No matter how hard the circumstances are, they press on, and the only thing that keeps them going is the love they have for their children.

This video is a perfect example of that kind of love. Leo Burnett Group Thailand made this ad entitled “Taxi” for Tesco Lotus, and it’s probably one of the most emotional and surprising videos you’ll ever see.

All he knows of touch is the pain he’d feel because of it.

By

A simple touch can convey so many meanings; it can show how much we love, care, or want something or someone. But sadly, others associate it with pain and despair---especially those who have been tortured and abused by the very people they thought they could trust.

Apart from the physical pain, abusive people inflict a deeper kind of wound on their victims---one that would remain even after all the visible scars have healed.

Dogs suffer emotional and psychological trauma from being mistreated as well. And it’s saddening how a gentle, loving, loyal, and sweet creature that loves to be caressed would whimper and cower in fear of someone's touch---all because it had been abused its entire life....
