Watch The Beautiful Thai Commerical That’s Making The Whole World Cry

AATTP

Sometimes you don’t need a two or three-hour movie to tell a story, make a statement and move people.  Sometimes you can do it in three minutes with little dialog and a minuscule budget.  Sometimes simple imagery does it better than any special effects or big production pieces.  Sometimes you find such artistry in the most unexpected places – you know – like maybe within a television commercial.

In a three-minute commercial called “Giving True,” a Thai telecom company does just that and, while it may seem to be a bit crass to put the company out there as some major philanthropic organization, the end product is an excellent morality tale.

It tells the story of a man who does a good deed with no expectation of repayment and, who many years later, is repaid many times over for his kindness.  In three minutes this mini movie tells a touching story and elicits a strong emotional response.  If it does not move you and, at the very least, bring a lump to the throat then there is something wrong . . . you have no heart.
