YouTube ads are usually a pain the ass, taking away from the viewing experience. But this is where content creators make money, so don't be surprised if a 30-seconder pops in while you're watching your random clip of the day.
Although recently, we stumbled upon a commercial that is actually worth your time. Titled "Learning to Love," the four-minute Vicks spot is about how an unexpected sense of responsibility causes a thug to have a change of heart. This ad is said to be inspired by a true story, which is probably why it easily tugs at the heartstrings.
The commercial, which already has almost 3 million views and over a thousand likes as of writing, can be described as short yet sentimental. Netizens, for their part, praised the narrative of the emotional short:
Makes you appreciate Pops even more
You'll never look at YouTube ads the same way again
Still better than local teleseryes
You know a production is good when even Kris Aquino notices
Basically all of us
