Beautiful and brutal ad is taking the Internet by storm

A World War II themed commercial from Thailand is taking the Internet by storm.

The three-minute ad, produced by mobile phone company TrueMove, tells the story of a woman who went to Thailand to find the person who helped her charity worker father when he was held as a prisoner of war.

The spot, aptly titled, “The True Meaning of Giving,” alludes to a prisoner-of-war camp in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where the Japanese forced prisoners to build a railway bridge, according to AdWeek.

TrueMove is no stranger to viral ads. In 2013, the company’s “Giving” spot also tugged at heart strings while attracting millions of views.


Touching video from Thailand goes viral.
