“People, this is AN AD. its not like it`s real or anything. If you want to feel sad, try thinking about the money you spent on you iPod and how many African babies the money could have saved.”

Obviously this is an AD, but why are you so annoyed that it’s making people emotional? Good media is supposed to get an emotional response out of the viewer. It doesn’t matter whether it’s real or not, the fact of the matter is that it’s true for somebody.

Oh, and I’m sure you’re doing your part in Africa. *eye roll*

You guys are such tards.

It wasn`t the dad`s decision to have the mother deliver it early, it was HERS- The mother PER SE!

"that was OBVIOUSLY not a real woman who jumped up from the table to grab her baby and sprint to her dying husband`s comatose side so that tears of paralyzed joy could drip down his face. It doesn`t happen that way... that was for the camera."

Naaah, really? Go figure that, since it was a commercial. I thought all commercials were recordings of actual events. /sarcasm

and by the way - no, that was OBVIOUSLY not a real woman who jumped up from the table to grab her baby and sprint to her dying husband`s comatose side so that tears of paralyzed joy could drip down his face. It doesn`t happen that way... that was for the camera. How is this not obvious to people? Situations similar to this may occur - LOOSELY similar - but this was Asian Hollywood in action. Enjoy it for what it is!

ROTFL at Ant0n - that was f*cking HILARIOUS!!! All you people who are making a big deal out of this, or the guy who picked on Ant0n for saying that - relaaaaaaax. Nobody is claiming that we should be racist toward Asians. America is a multicolored country now, and anybody living in it who can`t get used to that is just turning him or herself into a joke for the REST of us to laugh at. Now as for Ant0n`s comment, what`s so funny about it is that soooo much random sh*t comes to the U.S. from Asia, and we don`t know what half of it is (plastic toys, rice and jelly candies, etc) because we`ve never seen it before. It`s funny! There`s NOTHING WRONG WITH LAUGHING AT THE OBVIOUS. Peace out everyone.

A lady wanted her baby delivered early and then runs away? WTF? Probably not the best idea to leave a hospital with a baby you just gave birth to. Especially if it a forced birth, earlier than its due date.

I thought the commercial implied that the wife/mother made the decision to have the early c-section, in order to give her husband a chance to hold his child before he died.

I still think he`s a selfish dad. I would never ever put my wife through a c-section and deliver a baby just so I could "touch its hand". The baby`s not going to remember a damn thing anyway.

That video of the dad recording his voice should have sufficed.

SnToe, I really don`t know what you`re on, but stay away from it.

And derangedingo, I`m not talking about the whole commercial as a whole. I may have said to those who thought this was stupid didn`t have a heart, but mainly because they are bereft of human emotion; kind of like you

Secondly, human beings do NOT die with a smile and I don`t know what the hell possesed you into thinking that.

And, I DO listen to Mozart, thank you very much. And I`ll say F*ck you if you`re s*itting it.

"MRMike: This is not what matters in life, this was a bull*hit video intended in manipulating the sheepish emotions of people like you. Get a clue and grow a brain; this video was annoying.

Here`s a quote that I really like chewing on, you should try as well:
"What really matters, is that, in the end, the end of it all, the last Human being dies with a smile across his face. It is our job, our duty to all life on Earth, to assure the population of such an end."

That is what matters.
I don`t care at all about this pseudo-intellectual movie, as I said before, it`s STUPID.

If you want something to listen to that is A) Worth it, and B) Shows Human Emotion, try Mozart.
That goes for all of you, as well."

1. The language is Japanese

2. It is highly likely it is a re-make of a Michael Keaton movie, "My Life" (1993).

3. It is a very Japanese thing to do. The Japanese have been remaking movies, sampling music, etc. for years.

4. Before you call me a racist, I probally have more knowledge about asian culture than you do by ackually living in Asia!

For all you people who say this was stupid, you do not have a life, or a heart for that matter and should suffer in the darkest depths of hell.

For you Asian bashers: Grow Up. I don`t know what is up with you American people and Asians. What is it about them that makes them so intolerable? Why can`t you accept their culture, whilst living your own?

I`m Asian as well, and I`m really unhappy with these people poking fun at Asians, then telling them its some sort of "American acceptance" or some other poo like that, because they don`t know any better; or they make fun of their language and dialect because they don`t speak english. Americans, you have already seen it the past centuries or so, so why don`t you stop acting like your ancestors, grow up, and make something of yourselves?

I read the link
"What`s Important in Life - A touching commercial to remind us to keep things in perspective."
And thought "this is obviously sarcasm and going to be a funny beer commercial or something". Then I saw it was from break.com and thought "That`s a pretty humorous site. It used to be big-boys.com where they had many videos of fine girls. That must be the punchline in `what`s important in life`".
So as I waited for the joke on what would be so "touching" and what really is "important in life" I got very confused......then I got a little sad.....:-(. WHY DID HE DIE OF A TUMOR :-O? That`s not funny :-(. Take back the meaningful plot of the story and replace it with some immature joke I can laugh at |-(.

very sad but thoughtful commercial too in a way.

and for the people whining about a made-up woman having her baby born early let me say i`m prety sure it wasn`t THAT early. it was probably just a week or 2 early by c-section. which by the way many REAL people in REAL life have done too.

but anyways yea...it made me tear up and was a very deep message

And that video was a commercial for Nike. "Life`s too short. Just do it."

Haha I kid, but I guess someone did edit the end of it on YouTube to make it into a Nike commercial.

in US, pacific coastal asia is considered "asian" or "oriental", while the middle east (ie Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, etc) are considered "Indian"/"Middle Eastern" or slang "Gandhi" (ala Mahatma Gandhi).
