WATCH: This Now-Viral Vicks Commercial Was Inspired by a True Story
We're not crying, you're crying.
YouTube ads are usually a pain the ass, taking away from the viewing experience. But this is where content creators make money, so don't be surprised if a 30-seconder pops in while you're watching your random clip of the day.
Recently, we stumbled upon a commercial that is actually worth your time. Titled "Learning to Love," the four-minute Vicks ad is about how an unexpected sense of responsibility causes a thug to have a change of heart. Make sure to watch all the way to the end for the clincher!
The commercial, which already has almost 3.6 million views and over a thousand likes as of writing, can be described as short yet sentimental. Netizens, for their part, praised the narrative of the emotional short:
Makes you appreciate Pops even more
You'll never look at YouTube ads the same way again
Still better than local teleseryes
