Most commercials that move me are about babies or old people. Images spinning 60 seconds meant to change or reinforce your opinion about a product or a service.

"You come to America. No one knows who you are or why you are here. But you know - this is where anyone from anywhere can become anything they want to be. You work hard and eventually you earn more valuable than money. You earn respect..."

It made me stop on my tracks. Powerful because so true to so many people who have come to this country with nothing but hope and determination to find a better life.

But funny that it is a car commercial - by Hyundai. As narrated, I think, by Kiefer Sutherland.
