* Yet another British cinema ad (rated 15) about foreign children. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5taLU98m7JI&t=1s This time,]] they compare the children's fates to that of the Jews, complete with black-and-white footage of dead Jews being carried and thrown into plies of bodies and suffering or dying children. The sad piano music playing in the back doesn't help matters.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9PicdIGat4 A 15-rated cinema ad]] from the UK which tells us that nobody seems to care if kids in Africa starve or die and all they talk about is extra VAT on biscuits. That and the images of suffering children, oh my!

* [[https://youtu.be/3bdm4NBYxII This]] [=MetLife=] Hong Kong ad starts out Heartwarming, with an adorable little girl who adores her supportive dad, then veers ''deep'' into Tearjerker territory: He's been working menial jobs, going without food so his daughter can eat, and struggling as a single parent while pretending everything's fine so she can have a better life. The commercial is 'narrated' as an essay the girl wrote for school and her father's face as he reads it is heartbreaking.

* [[http://youtu.be/O3sUyu80rrM Last Dance]] An anti-smoking PSA video to the song Ka Sara Sara. A wife is sharing a last dance with her husband, who is clearly dying of cancer. The fact that their young son is watching, (a son the husband will not live to see grow up) makes the scene even more heartbreaking.

* Ford's "Ideas Are Scary" commercial. The idea-manifested as what can best be described as a dirty, bipedal English Shepard-is continuously abused by the world around him. He has no home, friends, or family. Then he is finally welcomed in by a Ford employee and honored as his whole life flips over for the better. And when he steps out in the very end on that stage, clean and bright, with what were once miscolored spots of fur turned into bright feathers, as people applaud him...[[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming aww, GAWD!]]

* When the Chicago Cubs ended their own World Series dry spell in 2016, Budweiser [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nApTGkLd2hs temporarily resurrected]] the Cubs' late, longtime announcer Harry Caray to let him "announce" their victory in a tribute commercial.
* Macy's produced a similar commercial to the Red Sox one involving an unlikely friendship between a young boy and a UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade balloon that continues even as the boy becomes an old man. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCv37nXwlPw It's much cuter than it sounds.]]
