It is official, I am soppy.
Isn't that great? I think this one is particularly well done.
Though I haven't seen it actually aired, it's obviously Canadian (Chapters is the equivalent of your Border stores).
I LOVED THIS! Thank you so much for sharing. :)
Ah, Canadian...that explains why I haven't seen it locally, John, but I'm kind of surprised that you haven't seen it up there. It's so well done that I figured it must have had lots of exposure somewhere.Jenclair & Joy, I've watched it close to a dozen times and still enjoy it. If all commercials were like that one, I wouldn't avoid television as much as I do.
That is so cute... "I long for the toll of the recess bell..." That's great. I have to admit my cynical side got me at first ("children don't write like that," etc.), but the second viewing let the humor point of the commercial sink in. I like it a lot; they should try some similar concepts here in the states.
I watched it again today...I think the teacher's reaction is priceless, especially at the very end when it appears that she is returning the note to the little boy.
