Giving Is The Best Communication – (Tear Jerking Thai Ad)

I just had to share…

"A commercial from Thailand about giving has started making its rounds over the Internet as so far it has viewers in tears!

In the three-minute commercial, we see a young Thai boy in a market place that gets caught stealing painkillers. As the storekeeper berates the young boy about stealing her merchandise, a soup seller at a nearby booth comes up to the boy and asks him if his mother is sick. The boy reluctantly nods yes. The poor soup seller then pays the woman the price of the painkillers and then calls to his daughter to bring the boy some veggie soup to take home. The girl rolls her eyes in a manner that lets us know, this was nothing new with her father.

The Thai giving commercial continues as years pass and the soup seller is seen giving his wares to the homeless and others in need of nourishment; until the day he falls down in his shop of some unnamed illness. The veggie soup seller is rushed to the hospital and after his time there the girl is handed a bill for 792,000 baht or about $25,000. The girl is clearly distraught and unsure how to pay the bill. As the commercial progresses, however, we come to a scene with the girl at the bed of her dying father and a note is found beside her. The girl opens it to discover an updated hospital bill, this time with the balance showing 0 baht. The debt has been paid with a note from the young boy who had been helped 30 years earlier by her father. Now the boy is presumably a successful doctor and he has paid the bill in full for the kindness and giving nature of the man so many years before.

The three-minute commercial included not only excellent acting but also such a powerful theme, few who watch it have been able to keep a dry eye." [Source]
