A sniffle ad

I am a sucker who enjoys ads that make me surreptitiously sniffle. Practically anything with the Budweiser Clydesdales can qualify, but this ad from Skype got me, too. Speaking as someone for whom Skype enabled a courtship, a long-distance relationship, and eventually a marriage, I can relate to this story of two besties who had never physically met.

    Sniffle, indeed.

    I think that this speaks volumes about connections with people, and how technology can be used for an amazing variety of things. When I have conversations with people who bemoan that there is a proliferation of “kids” who communicate only electronically, I point out that there are ways in which this can broaden the scope of reaching out and connecting with people as well.

  3. I love ads like this too. I am somewhere between crying and smiling right now.

    Below is the link to one of my recent favorites. I hope you like it too.

      Ahhh.. the crop-expression doesn’t exist in English… sorry.. An other way to say this is: i was touched.

        But now I’m intrigued. What is the crop expression? (Or a rough translation of it.)

        • Inge says:

          ‘Ik heb een krop in de keel’ is translated by an on-line translator as ‘i ve got a frog in my throat’ but when i research that it means you have to cough before speaking… not quite. Close but just not quite there yet. It’s more like your throat has closed up and it’s actually hard to swallow or speak. It’s caused by emotion and nothing else. That is ‘krop in de keel’.
