I never thought that an advertisement from Quaker could bring me to tears, but this short video titled “The Recital” did exactly that. At the beginning of the video, an important question is asked; “what if you were given the chance to do something you’ve always wanted to do, but you had to start today?” Like most people, there are many things I’ve always wanted to do that I keep putting off.
When Quaker asked ten-year-old Lauren, and her dad this question, they both had the same answer — they wanted to spend more time together. Quaker offered them the chance to do so, but the twist was that they had to start that day. Lauren is a dancer, and she wanted to surprise her mom by performing a dance with her dad for her summer recital. They trained for five days together, and although Lauren’s dad is not much of a dancer, he gave it his all. On the day of the recital, Dad is nowhere to be found, and Mom calls him repeatedly, worried that he’ll miss Lauren’s big performance. However, once Lauren’s dad joins her on stage, Mom’s reaction is priceless!
