Re: commercials that get you right in the feels

Getting past my irrational hatred of "the feels", Extra Gum's commercial with the daughter going to college impacted me a bit more than most.

Re: commercials that get you right in the feels



if by "feels" you mean an irrational hatred for the company that made this commercial, that is.

Re: commercials that get you right in the feels

The first really emotionally manipulative heavily sentimental TV ad I can recall was so popular they made a series of them. I think they were ads for AT&T long distance and they were about two old dudes who lived through the 1930's and 40's who call each other long distance to reminisce about how miserable the Great Depression was. Their voices' would crack as they discussed waiting in bread lines and getting on trucks to go to work camps.

Anyone else remember these?

Unfortunately revealing my age, yes, I remember.

Re: commercials that get you right in the feels

I work for a film festival, and before each movie we showed a series of commercials. A lot of people say they got all teary-eyed about this one:

I would always point out that
Spoiler:
the grandfather would most likely EXPECT the grandson to speak Chinese, and after the events of this commercial probably harangued the boy's parents about his pronunciation

Yeah, that definitely warrants a "who is the hot chick with the impressive forward guns in the juicy fruit commercial" search on Google.

Re: commercials that get you right in the feels

Whew. I was afraid you were going to link the Juicy Fruit beach commercial. The sister of a really close friend of mine tried acting for a bit, got a few soap opera gigs, and then the Juicy Fruit commercial. But not the one Honda posted.

No, it's the short-haired girl in this one:

None of them do because they are commercials.

The correct answer, indeed! I don't wish to waste any of my time watching any damned commercials. 99% of the crap on TV now qualifies for that distinction as well.

Re: commercials that get you right in the feels

I'm not caught up in all this Minions hysteria, but I have to admit I felt bad for the little guy in this commercial:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dwCpv7ii1Ws" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Embarrassing, 'cause it's just a computer-generated character. But hey, I've always been an emotional guy that way. I remember as a little kid crying my eyes out over "Snoopy Come Home".
