Why This Extra Gum Commercial Is Making Everyone Cry

Pin It

We live in a Netflix and DVR world, where we can pretty much watch all of our fave shows without having to see a single commercial.

So, why are people flocking to YouTube and seeking out this Extra Gum commercial? Because it's that good. The 2-minute ad has only been online for a few days and it's already gone viral, with over 2.5 million views on YouTube.

"A girl. A guy. And a stick of gum. See their love story unwrap," the incredibly simple description reads, saying everything and nothing at the same time. That girl is Sarah and the guy is Juan and there are actually a lot of sticks of gum.

The pair meets in high school and we see them offering each other sticks of Extra gum (hey, it IS an ad) throughout their memorable moments together: Their first kiss, prom, moving in together, getting in arguments, making up, kissing in the snow. All of it.

Then, at the end, we see Sarah walking through an art gallery featuring Juan's drawings on each of those wrappers commemorating those moments. And the last one? Juan on one knee, which Sarah turns around to discover.

Legit goosebumps happening right now.

Seriously, who knew a commercial could be so emotional?
