The Saddest Ad Ever...

Posted: Thursday, March 11, 2010 by DC in

This has been airing on the TV in NZ for awhile and I swear the first time I saw it I got teary eyed .

Father And Son - Starship Foundation

The music is by Grizzly Bear and its from their song 'Foreground'.

Night PPL'z!!!

    I would have to agree, in fact the first few times I shed a tear myself. Haven't seen it in a while though, but then I don't watch much tv either.

    Am i the only person who doesnt get what its about. i was sort of confused that the end and was like why is the little dude in hospital :S but yes it does seem very sad from what i got of it

  1. DC says:

    Starship Hospital is for kids. The message for the ad is that parents would do anything for their children and they want to take the pain away from their kids who have medical problems. The father is in hospital at the start because it symbolizes that HE would rather go through the pain so his son wouldn't have to. Hope that helped Raron

    Boy, that really is a tear-jerker, it got mine going. What a sad thing to see such a beautiful young kid so ill.

    yep, that did it. I've held it together for q while, but... Thank goodness I get to go home and see the kids in a few more days. I've got some long hugs for them.

    if you don;t think your Mom or Dad would trade places should something happen to you, then may you find a friend who would.
