Weddings are one of life’s most memorable moments, and with this special moment, you’re sure to get your eyes filled with tears as you cross another milestone in life, especially when different songs start to play as your background music– they hit you right in the feels. Whether you’re a classical music buff or not, keep your tissues handy before watching this heartwarming ad– we guarantee that you will need it as you go on watching.
This ad from Tosando is a definite example of it; a video about a father’s very special message to his daughter on her wedding day. Tosando is a Japanese company based in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture that offers musical instruments and lessons, is pleased to oblige with this intense, time-tripping tearjerker.
The 3.5 minute video was uploaded on YouTube for everyone to watch. The video is entirely in Japanese, but even if you don’t know a word of the language, it won’t matter because you can still get through the message of the clip. It tells the story of a widowed, middle-aged father and his daughter on her wedding day.
At the start of the clip, the father, Yasuhiro Yamanaka is called forward to give a speech at his daughter Rena’s wedding reception. But instead of coming to the front of the room, Mr. Yamanaka walks over to the piano and places a picture frame on the piano before seating himself.
“Your father can play?” the groom asks Rena.
“No,” she replies with a puzzled expression and she starts to panic. Then, dad sits at the piano and attempts to play Pachelbel’s Canon, which opens the floodgates for memories both happy and sad.
The flashbacks are a bit puzzling at first, but you’ll get the gist.
Wanna know what happened next? Watch the entire clip and be moved by this simple yet heartwarming commercial by Tosando. (P.S Keep your tissues handy just in case.)
At the end, we see a simple slide with a powerful impact that reads “Music transcends words.”
Indeed, music is a universal language.
