* Speaking of Thai ads, [[http://youtu.be/VC9PsJb6S_s this Pantene commercial is just]]... Wow. It's about the story of a deaf and mute girl who learns to play the violin against all odds. "You can shine." It is a very beautiful commercial, and if you don't cry then YOU HAVE NO SOUL.
* Shit sucks,U MAD NICCAW?
* FUCK YOU, YOU SHIT EATING FUCK HEAD. HOW DARE U HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINON THAN ME
* LEARN TO SPELL NICCAW FUCK U

* One Canadian [=PSA=] about the homeless has a teenage girl who's dressed in rags and sitting on an old blanket at an abandoned bus stop, which is also her makeshift home, at night as an instrumental of "Amazing Grace" played on an electric guitar is heard in the background. As people walk by ignoring her as she holds out I cup for spare change, she then ages down with each passersby until she ends up a crying infant as a text appears asking "How Young Do They Have To Be Until You Notice Them?" It's truly heartbreaking.

Indeed, {{Public Service Announcement}}s can be jest as poignant as they usually are [[NightmareFuel/PublicServiceAnnouncement nightmarish]].

* 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.
