You'll Cry Over the Failure of Technology in this Moving Ad For Dtac

Y&R Thailand Shows Telcom Provider Has Heart, Even When It Fails

Editor's Pick

Once again, a Thai ad has made us cry like sissies, this time for telcom provider Dtac. Y&R Thailand depicts the very typical parental crisis of dealing with a crying, inconsolable baby--in this case, one who's home with a clueless papa while mama's out shopping.

The father turns on a video chat with mom over the phone in the hopes that her soothing words will do the trick, but to no avail. Eventually, he lands on a simpler, much more effective solution. "The Power of Love" ad has already gone viral, racking up more than 7 million views on Youtube.
