Get out your hankies, folks.

It's that time of year, when the advertisers usually reach for your pocket... but in this case, Chevrolet reached for your heartstrings.

And in my opinion, it was a massive success.  I'm a car guy, so I really liked it.  I'm also an older guy, so it resonated with me, but I also think you'll enjoy.

Good morning Alan. Not a big Chevy fan but this commercial applies across brand lines. Enjoy your day.

I've actually never owned a Chevy, but they did a great job with this commercial.

Hello Alan - advertising can certainly succeed when heartstrings are touched but it seems shareholders like it when the purse strings get some attention too.  Of course, there are times when both play a role together.  It can occur during the holiday as well as when the earnings are released.

I believe they call it the "softsell"

I have never been much of a car guy and I am definitely not a fan of any of the legacy auto brands these days but I have to give them kudos for the commercial.

I am not a car fan, but I love the commercial.  It is one of the few commercials that I would enjoy watching over and over.

Advertisers going for the heartstrings? Nah - they wouldn't do that around Christmas, would they?

Hi Alan- I've seen that ad and fell in love with it. I love how people came together to get it back in shape. Have you seen the cute one with the little girl who saves her snowman in her freezer??
