Does your child understand this advertisement?

Postby Guest » Fri Jun 25, 2010 10:08 pm

I was watching this touching advertisement on TV abit like Yasmin's Petronas production.....I wondered if my child understand what it was trying to convey...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybxNkpS5q-g

Her reply was she saw a difficult old lady and the parents continued to take care of her. She thought the young lady with the fever boy was another family...... Lucky I saw and explained to her...

Do you think this advert has failed by being abit complicated or my child is just an exception.

I found the Yasmin's ones more succint in its messaging than this one.

I do not think they are targeting at the kids, but at adults as the slogan is "How One Generation Loves, The Next Generation Learns"

basically, if we adults want our kids to love us when we are old, we better love our parents now.

Ah so....then parents must sit with kids to explain this advert, cos not easy for them to understand. Kids watching this alone may not be a good idea either even if it is not targetted at them as they form wrong ideas. agree? :|

Actually the DIL in the ad is seen as frustrated, but 无 耐.

Very few things on earth is more influential than a woman's tears. A aged mother's tears is certainly equally powerful. Very dilemma leh, for the man. But I feel that he should not go all out to please his mum, at the expense of wifey (the part on the dinner). But maybe when it's my turn to have my own DIL, I'll naturally think differently then :evil:

My child may not understand completely as she is only 8. But I think this adver is targetting more to teenagers like 13-19 yrs old. This group should be able to understand completely. But how effective in converying the message across is everyone's guess.

Oh actually I hv a very different interpretation after I hear the doctor say "she is a very strong woman" plus the flashback of the old memories.

I told my dd, the grandma only trying to be difficult so the son will send her away. She thinks she is a burden to her son knowing she is sick so she is finding a way to get away, to stay with her sis instead. I find old folks usually like to stay w children so suggesting to stay with sis sounds fishy to me lor, like she is running away from something. The grandson just sees all the surface behaviours of the grandma n frowns.

But lucky the son trusted his own instinct of his mother's love. Each time I watch this advert I will shed tears, even when writing this. I am very sure the old gen folks are very capable of showing consideration to their children so I find it even more touching. So I use this advert to explain to my dd that not only look at surface things grandma does, her love is deeper than she knows.

Am I reading too much???

That is why I find this advert cheek for kids lor....
