* The PSA "My Heroes," which aired Halloween 2017. A family gets ready for trick-or-treating, the children choosing to go as Wonder Woman and Batman. The kids are clearly excited and happy, but the parents, especially the father, seem anxious for some reason, especially when the kids go to the first house. At the end of the video, when the children are tucked into bed, we see why: [[spoiler:the boy chose to go as Wonder Woman, while the girl chose to go as Batman. It's a happy tearjerker, since everything went fine, the kids had a good time, and the parents are supportive of their kids' decisions, but considering how some people react to gender nonconformity, it's easy to see why the parents were scared. [[AdultFear No parent wants their kid to be teased or bullied for expressing themselves.]] Also, the creators of the PSA said they made it specifically for children who may want to wear clothes meant for the other gender, but ''don't'' have supportive parents like the ones in the ad.]]

* [[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. He then gives his daughter a giant hug after he finishes reading and she's looking at the round.

* When the Chicago Cubs ended their own World Series dry spell in 2016, Budweiser [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alGoTD-3O0o temporarily resurrected]] the Cubs' late, longtime announcer Harry Caray to let him "announce" their victory in a tribute commercial. If you as a Cubs fan remember all the years of yelling at the team to "do it for Harry" after his death in 1998, this will leave you a sobbing mess.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPwgPe8XZ20 Trifexis commercial]] just seems silly at first glance. But being trapped in that ridiculous oversized rodent tube thing, the dog has barely any room for maneuverability, can't interact with the world around it, and worse, can't be close with its family. Makes the ending where it's let out something of a HeartwarmingMoment by comparison.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2prAccclXs "Brotherhood"]] by Budweiser. A man and a horse share a great kinship. It's a TearJerker and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming all at once!

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj96XYhwTFI To Michael,]]'' an ad for the Playstation 3 where numerous video game characters tell their story on how a gamer (the aforementioned Michael) helped them prove their worth and become the heroes they are. The concept alone will get you choked up, but it really turns on the waterworks once you realize that the ad was dedicated to a popular gamer who had recently died of cancer, so the characters are congratulating Michael in remembrance of him due to his recent death.
