The perfect combination

When I saw this commercial from Visa for the first time, it took every bit of will power I could muster to keep tears from rolling down my face.  By layering such elements as Morgan Freeman's stoic voice behind the emotions provided by the Olympics Games and a tragic death paired with the agony of defeat ultimately being triumphed by the thrill of victory and the joy of parenthood, Visa created a very touching and motivational thirty seconds.  

I can't wait to see what stories emerge from the Winter Games next month.


  1. Wow - what a great story. I am excited to see what emerges from the games as well. -Rach

  2. what a softie! I like it. I will watch some of the winter games, but will avoid figure skating at all costs.
