    Infinite sads indeed. Always refreshing to see stuff like this from asian cultures, where media isn`t all rainbows and happy endings. This is reality.

    Title is misleading though, did you mean Dead Island MUSICAL theme? Because I was expecting this to turn into zombies at some point, I can only assume you meant the music.

    Damn, that video gets me every f*cking time. With the inclusion of that music though, it was like watching it for the first time all over again.

    Damn it. I know I will cry if I watch it again, but I still watch it. Bawled my eyes out.

    I don`t understand why people think this is sad...The girl is free of her father, as he is apparently dead- and since this is an insurance commercial, there is the possibility of a nice, fat policy payout; A happy ending, indeed.

    I`ve been coming to IAB for a few years. I just created an account because I don`t get this video. Yes it`s a sad story until the end. So the DOC took enough blood from the father (which killed him) to save his daughter? He had the $ means to cover her. Is it a lack of medical means? They don`t have blood on stand by? And why would a doctor take his life for his daughter? IAB has a bunch of smarties... someone can explain...

    Dad: "Take my blood"

    Doctor: "Like...all of it? that would be unnecessary and probably kill you, but whatever...."


    YOU BUY INSURANCE NOW OR DOCTOR TAKE ALL YOU BLOOD!

    he didnt have medical insurance to get aid at the hospital so he had to convince the doctor to give his own blood. which caused his death and he never got to tell her daughter how he felt?

    this was obviously an over dramatization but the fact remains, when you do not have insurance you or someone you love will very likely die of something that could have been treated.

    but hey, so long as you don`t feel like you are paying another tax it`s all good.

    I was hoping a site called `I am bored` would make me less bored. No such luck.

    Well if Thailand is anything like China you are pretty correct. My father in-law died of cancer in a Chinese hospital. He required regular blood transfusions due to low platelets. In order to get blood, you either had to have someone donate blood (If the donor was not a match, the hospital would swap the blood with another donor, if there was one.), or you could buy blood from the `black market`. If you needed to buy it you had to make sure it was done during business hours or you were sol.

    The most beautiful girlI have ever met in my life I had only known for about 5 seconds.. She was absolutely stone cold deaf and spoke with a `never actually heard the way it sounds`type of accent. She wasnt a super model and she wasnt sexy or rich... but she was happy..and in the exact instant she spoke she instantly made ever other woman I had ever met seem just plain boring.

    Downside is she shook my world and all I could do was walk away :S

    The music is the same music that was used in the trailer for Dead Island. Incidentally, that DI trailer was incredible!

    In its own way, this commercial is great as well.

    "The most beautiful girlI have ever met in my life I had only known for about 5 seconds."

    so just the right amount of time until you first heard her speak. you don`t want to deal with the BS, am I right?

    This actually made me cry. I lost my then 17 year old daughter almost two years ago. The pain is still there. It will never go away.

    If she can`t live with you as her father, put her up for adoption.
