As parents, we all make sacrifices for our children. We want our children to pursue a better life and sometimes hide our own struggles. This tear-jerking commercial from MetLife Hong Kong pays tribute to those daily sacrifices and is a must-see for any parent.
In the ad, titled My dad’s Story: Dream for My Child, a young girl hands her dad a letter. She narrates the piece, gushing about her dad being her “Superman,” “the most clever,” and “the sweetest daddy in the world.” He’s seen taking her our for ice cream and cheering her on at school.
But then, her letter takes a shocking turn!
“He lies,” she says. “He lies about having a job. He lies about having money. He lies that he’s not tired. He lies that he’s not hungry. He lies that we have everything. He lies because of me.”
You see the father working multiple jobs and begging a recruiter to hire him. Despite his struggles, he does it all with a smile, so his daughter won’t worry about him. It’s a real heart-breaker, but at the very end? Pass the tissues! This is a truly inspiring video dedicated to hardworking parents everywhere.
