Video of the Weekimage

“Unsung Hero” is a tearjerker that will leave you astonished that this level of emotion is elicited by a Thai Life Insurance commercial. It depicts a story of a man who helps people, animals, plants and the world simply because it makes him feel better when he gives to others. “What does he get in return?” a narrator asks. “He gets nothing. He won’t be richer. He won’t appear on TV. Still anonymous. And not a bit more famous.” "What he does receive are emotions," the narrator continues. "He witnesses happiness. Reaches a deeper understanding. Feels the love. Receives what money can't buy. A world made more beautiful." This commercial will take you on a journey of recognizing it’s not about being well known that matters, it’s about being someone worth knowing. [Source: KarmaTube]
