'My Dad's Story': Tearjerker Advert Shines Light on Working Poor

By Localiiz 12 February 2015
MetLife has released a real tearjerker of an advert highlighting the lengths that a parent will go to raise a happy, healthy, and well educated child. The touching video, which has racked up more than 5 million views on YouTube, shows a daughter who is proud of her father's accomplishments but is aware that he struggles to ensure her happiness and future. The version below was shot in Thailand and produced for the Hong Kong market with five more iterations released throughout Asia. Living in poverty is an all too familiar experience for Hong Kong's residents with the government reporting the poor population at nearly 1 million and 380,000 households living below the poverty line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bdm4NBYxII
