THAI ADVERT MOVES PEOPLE TO TEARS – True Mobile, one of the telecommunications companies in Thailand, has recently produced a notable video advertisement.
It is titled ‘Giving is the best communication’ and it surely hits home that the power of giving to someone else in need is truly our greatest achievement.
I am sure you will agree with me when I say that most news is bad news and yet advertisements such as this are often created from real life experiences and clearly show that we can all make a difference to another person’s life if we but give a moment of our time.
The advertisements depicts a boy who stole medicine from a pharmacy and as the shop owner admonishes the boy, a simple noodle seller comes to his aid, pays for the medicine and provides the boy with food.
30 years later the noodle seller, after he has done many good deeds, collapses. His daughter is then faced with a massive medical bill; a sum that requires her to put the family home and noodle shop up for sale.
The closing scene sees an envelope being left by her side as she sleeps next to her father in the hospital. She opens the envelope to discover that the medical bill has been settled in full which was paid for by the boy, who is now a grown man and who became a doctor.
This type of advertisement should be widely spread and maybe, just maybe, we could all realise that we could and should do a little more for our fellow man.
An act of kindness rarely costs much but can certainly make a world of difference at the time, and in the future.
