It was uploaded by Procter & Gamble, the creative agency is Wieden + Kennedy and the media is Media Vest. The ad is emotional, very emotional. It shows the relationship between children and mother. The children keep falling down and always mom is there to make them stand, console them, and motivate them to aim for the goal. I am not sure how to explain this, watch it, and feel the emotions. The ad reminded me, my child hood days and all those who watch the ad would feel that. The ad ends with the words, “For teaching us that falling only makes us stronger – Thank you mom.”. Yes, thank you mom.
