8 Thai Commercials
That Prove They are the Master
by Kel Fabie
Considering that government intervention is very latently practiced in Thailand, it’s pretty impressive what direction they decided to take that intervention in. Needless to say, it has become common practice nowadays for Thai commercials to run long and evoke tears from its audiences much in the same way Japan elicits WTF’s with theirs.
Here are just 8 examples to show you what we mean. For the sake of enjoying the videos thoroughly, I will not describe them as much as I normally would want to.
8. Acts of Kindness
Cat videos are cool and all, but it’s impossible to imagine a cat ever doing anything like this, eh? A little kindness indeed goes a long way. That is one very smart dog, and it would seem that Thai commercials like to drill home the notion of being nice to people.
7. Scholarships Project
Teach your children to fish so that they can feed themselves. :)

How does one teach their child to become an entrepreneur? There are a million ways, but this one is perhaps one of the most endearing ways ever. Ultimately, this ad is pushing a scholarship project, which tries to empower budding businesspeople to make it in the marketplace.
6. My Dad Is a Liar
With a title like that, you would think this is the tale of a very horrible dad. You would be very, very surprised.
Even more surprising? This is an insurance commercial for MetLife. Who knew insurance policies and premiums can tug on your heartstrings like this?
“C” is for “cancer.” And “crying.” That’s pretty much a given, but framing it as a tale of two sisters on the verge of estrangement really just adds an extra oomph. The National Cancer Institute definitely struck gold with this one.
4. Pantene makes you crai
With Pantene, you can shine. Apparently, playing the violin really allows you to show off your long, flowing hair.
3. A Teacher’s Calling
And we mean that in more ways than one! The tale of a father who loves his daughter dearly even if she seeks out to answer her own teaching vocation, and how they are connected by, well, their network provider, AIS. Globe and Smart, take notes!
2. Paying It Forward
Kindness, repaid two generations after. For a premise so simple, this ad really knows how to run with the concept. I don’t think I need to describe it much, because the commercial speaks for itself.
1. Homeless Blind Truth
Imagine how we treat insignificant people in our lives with disinterest or even disgust. Now, imagine if one of these people suddenly disappeared from your life, and you discovered the effect they had on you. The profound effect. What would it mean to you? And is it too late?
