The Value of Life: A TV Ad that Moved Me to Tears


This touching "Melody of Life" commercial for Thai Life Insurance took the Grand Prix for TV submissions at this year's Spike Asia Awards.

Words I've taken to heart from the ad:
"The real value of life is not being rich, celebrated, or living a long time.
Life is about how you value others.
And how others value you."

Yes, very moving and really tugged at my emotions!
I loved the part where they all ran into the sea, it brought a big smile to my face!
Sad but uplifting at the same time!!
