Ever heard about a job with no pay, where you’re on duty 24/7 and will have to undergo severe changes, physically and mentally? Cardstore released an ad in 2014 that highlighted how tough it was to be a mother. With mother’s day around the corner (it’s Sunday, for those of you who don’t know) Paul Writer decided to take a walk down memory lane and revisit our favorite mother’s day ads.
Is it the song? Or is the touching clips of mothers from various walks of lives displaying their affection for their daughters? When we realize the double meaning of the lyrics towards the end, we only appreciate the ad a little bit more. However, we do have one question: where are the sons?

Celebrating mother’s day and your mother is important, but also recognizing that sometimes the father does both parental roles. This ad from Nissan portrays a daughter talking with her parent, who we assume is her mother. Towards the end, it’s revealed that she’s been talking to her father all this while.

Amazon’s #MomBeAGirlAgain campaign was well-received by the viewers. The ads featured children presenting their mothers with gifts from Amazon that would have them relive their youth. This ad displays a daughter who goes to study in a boarding school where her mother studied too. It’s here that she learns from a coach that her mother was a legendary football player. We won’t give away the rest of the story, you can watch it for yourself.
