An advert of a father and son going about their daily routine has the internet flooded with tears because of how beautiful their story is.


Global – If you don’t want to cry today, this isn’t the story for you. But if you want to see something so beautiful, grab a few tissues and get comfy.

Advertisers have a way of reaching into our hearts and pulling on its strings. Some of the best adverts out there are the ones that hit us on an emotional level.

In June of 2017, Gillette came up with an advert that had everyone blubbering and reaching out to hug their dads. The advert has been going around social media once again, and the tears are flowing.

We just saw the advert for the first time and had to stop midway to get tissues. The company made the advert about a father-son relationship that had turned, and now the son was caring for his father. The story follows their daily lives and how they do the morning shave.

It focuses on how relationships shift when our parents become ill and the importance of being there for them every day until the end.

We can’t get enough of how beautiful this advert is. It really touched our souls! Take a look below.
