    The only commercial that ever REALLY got to me was one from years ago...it was a Johnson and Johnson ad...showed a new mom with her newborn...she was unwrapping the baby and marveling over the baby's "perfection" I bawled my eyes out on that one!!! I believe (if I'm not mistaken) that that commercial won an advertising award that year.

    Also, I get choked up when the commercial for kodak photos on disk - the girl works in the pound and puts out emails with pictures of dogs that need to be adopted...they all look so sad! That one gets me every time too!

    Yep! I'm a sentimental sap!!

    Oh the one that gets me is the one( I think american express) where the woman gets a phone call and the woman on the phone says....her name is Nadia(I think). She is sitting there crying when hubby walks in and he picks up the phone to redeem points for airfare, hotel, travelers checks and then it shows them picking up their baby........that one gets me......

    I like the one where the boy comes home for Christmas from a college far, far away, and surprises his parents by waking them up witht he smell of Folger's coffee....

    I like the Kodak commercial where the boy is blowing up a picture of his grandma when she played baseball a long time ago and he makes it big and gives it to her. That one always gets me

    I like the new one with the guy paying his bills and the little girl comes out with the robot toy and says that he can return it if it will help...(i'm thinking...oh, how sweet). Then the dad says, "Isn't that your brothers?" and the little girl laughs. Don't know what it's for....

    I love that one too - That guy is probably 40 something now - oh but what a hunk he was

    And the one where the mommy is going back to school, trying to study and her little guy makes her a PB&J Hits so close to home...

    I like the GE one where this couple is seeing their baby on the new 3D ultrasound. It makes me smile every time.

    Love the one where the little boy is sitting on the ground being covered in little puppies licking his face and crawling all over him. Can't remember what they were advertising but love the little boy's giggle! I'm a sucker for any comercial with a critter, always warms my heart!
