We may need a moment before writing this post. Seriously, what are you trying to do to us here, Extra gum? We began watching this commercial out of mild curiosity, and ended up almost bawling our eyes out and calling our parents afterward!
Don't believe us? Click play to watch for yourself the emotional roller coaster ride of a father-daughter relationship played out over the years through gum-wrapper origami and see if you don't get at least a little misty-eyed.
We dare you. We double dare you! Our only real question for Extra gum would be this: Why are you trying so hard to get people to buy Kleenex instead?
