9 Sad TV Commercials Guaranteed to Make You Cry ...


I don’t know when this trend started, but lately, the airwaves seem to be full of sad TV commercials, all guaranteed to make you cry. Or maybe it’s just me, being an overly emotional person… but I don’t think so! I actually really love ads that tug at my heartstrings, and if you do too, grab the Kleenex and keep reading. Here are my picks for the most tragic, touching, and downright sad TV commercials of all time.

Right in the feels.
