This ad about an everyday Spider-Man is going to make you cry
What’s sweeter than watching superheros build balloon animals as birthday parties? Watching a window cleaner transform into Spider-Man to surprise a children’s hospital, that’s what! And now because of one awesome healthcare company, you can see Spider-Man come to life in one of the best commercials we’ve seen.
Philips and the Ogilvy & Mather London marketing agency put together the awesome commercial after being inspired by the story of a Mayo Clinic Children’s Center custodian. Roger Corcoran cleaned windows of the Minnesota hospital for 30 years. One day in 2013, Corcoran traded in his normal work attired for a Spider-Man costume during a pediatric superhero celebration, and the rest is history.
The heartwarming commercial previously aired in Australia, and since has swept the world by storm.
Get your tissues ready, because this Spider-Man ad is everything.
We can’t even describe all of the warm and fuzzy feelings the commercial just gave us. And watching the everyday Spider-Man perform good deeds for strangers on his way to the hospital was the icing on the cake. With everything going on in the world, we totally needed to see this.
It’s time to get out there and lend a helping hand to those in need. And we have this inspiring commercial to thank.
