* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wYXw4K0A3g This Heineken ad]] named Worlds Apart, filmed in the UK. It features six different people with very opposing views on feminism, transgender rights and climate change. The ad opens with each of them expressing their views on those topics. Then, their polar opposites are made to work together in pairs, without knowing anything about what the other thinks about their issues. They work together to build a bar table, learning something about each other in the process. The reveals are surprising-the trans person is ex-military, the skinhead drifted to anger because he was completely homeless for a long period of time, the climate change denier prefers to hold a calm discussion rather than argue. Yet all of them are liking the other so far. Then, they have to watch a clip of their partners talking about their views on the issue. They have a choice now-to leave or stay and talk their differences over two cold bottles of Heineken. Despite everything, despite how polarized and conflicted the world is today, [[WhatYouAreInTheDark not one of them chooses to leave]] and all part on good terms.

** One standout moment belongs to the anti-trans person: after stating at the beginning that he considers gender to be purely biological, he ends the ad by asking his transwoman partner for her phone number to keep in touch despite jokingly claiming that his girlfriend might be upset at him "texting another girl".

* Lyft, a ride sharing service, made [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8nyGzOLsdw a short animation advertisement]] for their company. Not only is the main focus a widow who chose to work for the company, it climaxes when one of her clients brings help to move her stuck car from the snow. What goes around, comes around.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v61wTya_GJY this]] Hallmark commercial, a woman enters a grumpy professor's office as he packs it up; she explains that she was one of his former students, and heard he was retiring. The professor, who's obviously grouchy about having to leave, claims he doesn't remember the woman and acts dismissive, even when she offers him a card she bought for the occasion. He makes her read the card aloud (he can't find his glasses), which is all about what an inspiration he was to many people, including her. The professor, touched, cites the paper the woman wrote for him, proving he ''does'' remember her, and commends her as she heads for the door. But the real clincher is when he asks what she used her education to become--"Investment banker?" Internet guru?" The woman stops, turns back, and says "No...I'm a teacher." Cue waterworks.

* [[http://youtu.be/7VOszEhUuC0 Every Day Is A Chance To Stir Things Up]] Another coffee commercial but for the creamer, Coffee Mate. A wife is about to go back to work after her cancer treatments and is uncertain about how she will be received by her co-workers. Her husband is giving encouraging words as he pour her a cup of coffee. After taking a sip she decides to go to work without her wig and remove it. Her husband smile, pressing his head against her forehead, murmuring that ‘bald is beautiful’. The wife smile back and reply ‘You should know’ gripping his hand. (The husband is also bald). Beautiful moment of supporting your spouse.
