Having kids really wrecks you for life, and I’m not talking about the whole big head coming through the vagina incident. No, I am talking about something much more traumatic. Post children, I am unable to watch regular television without fear of bursting into hysterics over a lame TV commercial. Maybe it is a culmination of too many sleepless nights, or there are too many hormones still floating around after giving birth. Whatever the reason, there is no known cure. So grab the tissues and brace yourself for the tears. It’s about to get ugly cry up in here.
1. The GE Sonogram Commercial
The song, her face, the baby’s face, and the awkward photo bomb from the dad at the end means I am not only sobbing right along with that new mom, but I am also begging my husband to impregnate me so I can relive this moment.
2. Verizon Mother’s Day Commercial
Dear Verizon, are you trying to kill me? Seriously, my heart exploded in my chest when I saw this one. A Mamma watching her boy grow up, push away her touch, and move away. Why don’t you just have the family dog get hit by a car, huh? It’s all too much. I can’t take it, but I am going to watch it again. Call me in a few hours to make sure I am OK.
3. P&G Thanks, Mom Olympic Commercial
Screw you, P&G. Screw you.
4. Target Acceptance Commercial
I don’t know why this one makes me so verklempt, but seeing these kids reactions to getting into college is amazing and consistently renders me a blubbering mess. I would try to take a stand and say I am boycotting Target for putting me in this predicament, but we all know, that is a load of crap.
5. Baby Driver by Subaru
Wait for it….wait for it…BOOM! She’s a teenager. Waahhhh! Someone find my kids, I need to weep into their little heads. And while you are at it, get me a freaking Subaru.
Tell me, what commercials make you cry?
Notes from the Shallow End says
Yes. All of these destroy me. Thank you, now I’m a blubbering mess. The other one that makes me cry (for Johnsons Baby Wash, maybe?) is the one where the mom is bathing her baby in the kitchen sink , and the voice over says, “Who’d have ever thought the love of her life would turn out to be short, fat, and bald?” Ugly cry every time.
Hope I didn’t ruin your day with an early cry! I know what commercial you are talking about! That one wrecks me too!
New site looks FAB!!!!!!!!
The Pursuit of Normal says
Seriously? Really? I’m totally crying like a fool which makes no sense because 1) I hate 3D sonograms. so gross. Every baby looks like they’re in a jar of formaldahyde. just gross 2) I am a lame mom because no matter how many loads of laundry I do or how many times I drag their asses out of bed, they’ll never be olympians. (selfish children) 3) Subaru Dad should be more concerned about the fact that his daughter is HOT and probably driving off to meet her 33 year old secret boyfriend.
But the Target commercial? That kicks ass.
OK, I’m kiddding. And crying. My kids better make a commercial about how awesome i am.
p.s. Love the new look!!! GORGEOUS!!
Ha! Oh, Vicki! I LOVE you!!!
I’m not even a momma and here I am BAWLING my eyes out at my desk at work. I would say my coworkers are concerned, but they’ve seen these kind of theatrics from me before. AWESOME new site!
PS- check out the google+ commercials…one about a guy who wants to get back together with his ex, the other is a video chat segment with a college student and her dad.
Both will reduce you to tears. Happy youtubing!
