Westpac Tells A Mustache-Filled Life Story In This Lovely Ad From Australia

I love this ad for Westpac, created by DDB Sydney. We see the life story of a man, starting from a chance meeting with his future wife. He wrangles in a wayward horse right before his wedding, and he’s a rugby superstar (a team player too). He’s a music teacher, he saves a child from a sandstorm, and he’s a doting father and grandfather. Aside from being a great dude, the one constant in this man’s life is his impressive mustache. But like all of us eventually, he dies. We see his funeral…and everyone in attendance is wearing fake mustaches in his honor.  The spot concludes with the message “If you’ve lost a loved one, we’re here to help.” Who’s cutting onions? The song playing throughout is a nice cover of “I’ll Never Find Another You” originally by The Seekers.
