I did not see this coming on a random Friday night while I was tuned in to Shark Tank. A commercial came on and with every second that passed, I became more emotional and drawn in. The video montage of families interacting, the sound of “You Are My Sunshine” strummed leisurely on a guitar. As if the person playing it is sitting on a stool in a dimly lit room, with a second to themselves, thinking about the one they love, lost in tranquility, and while their heart is full, they smile.
The melody continues as the scenes begin tugging at your heart. How you can love better. Remembering the ones that love you. That was enough for me, but then I nearly lose it when Johnny Cash starts singing the chorus. Wow. Good commercial, Whirlpool, good commercial. When you think you’re ready, check it out below.
