A Dad Remembers When His Daughter Met Cinderella At Disney World

Disney knows how to manipulate your emotions, and they do it well in this spot. We see a young girl excitedly running to meet and hug Cinderella at Disney World. Then we cut to the present…turns out that dad is just watching a video of her meeting Cinderella. She’s about to leave for college and he’s wiping away tears. Aww. The ad ends with the words “Because they’re only little for a little while.” Is it emotionally manipulative? Sure. But will it cause many parents to get misty-eyed? Yup. By the way, the dad is played by Mark Gessner.

Make Memories With A Subaru Forester

Subaru has a knack for sentimental advertising, particularly regarding the father/daughter relationship. Their “Baby Driver” commercial might be one of the best ads of the decade. Another favorite of mine is about a father and young daughter chasing a rainbow. Now Subaru has another great one in the books, created by Carmichael Lynch out of Minneapolis. The new spot, “Making Memories”, shows a father cleaning out his Forester, and certain items make his flashback to different times in his daughter’s life. He’s getting a new Forester, and she’s getting the old one. The song is “Time Will Tell” by Gregory Alan Isakov. I bet this one will make a lot of parents tear up.
