My Dad’s Story: Dream for My Child

my dad's story

The only time any of us watch commercials is during the Superbowl. The other 364 days of the year, we fast forward through them and ignore them completely.

I’m going to ask you to watch one commercial. Watch it all the way through.

This is a commercial from MetLife Hong Kong titled, My Dad’s Story: Dream for My Child. If you don’t feel anything watching this commercial, then you have to be a robot because this is incredibly well done.

This dad lies to his daughter every day and she loves him to death for it.

My Dad’s Story: Dream for My Child


Yes this is a commercial for a product, but it’s more of a story than a product pitch. Most of us as parents know how this is. We shield our kids from the bad things in our lives and try to smile so they don’t know the struggle.

To those of you out there who are battling every day to provide for your kids while keeping them happy, here’s to you. ┬áKeep up the fight because it is worth it.

Thank you for this MetLife.
