I Love the Internet

I have been watching commercials lately. I know what you're thinking: why? I'm watching TV while I'm working, so there's no need to fast forward commercials.

Yesterday I watched this JC Penny Mother's Day commercial and started crying.



Last night at the Witt's, I was explaining it to Allison and Ryanne and started crying again.

Then it came on during American Idol and I cried again. (Seriously. JC Penny?)

All this to say, the emotional response is evoked by the mix of the song playing in the background and these mother-daughter/mother-daughter-grandmother scenes.

I wanted to hear the song in its entirety; completely worth my $.99. I typed "JC Penny Mother's Day Commercial Song" in to Google and found my answer: Joshua Radin "Only You".

It could be considered a "put you to sleep" song, but I find it relaxing.

It makes me want to walk down the street holding my mom's hand. It does not make me want to buy her a Mother's Day gift from JC Penny. (Sorry advertisers!)
