Holy moly, I just had to pull myself together enough to write this…
Here’s my fair warning: Whatever You Do, Do Not Watch The McDonald’s Commercial Unless You’re Prepared To Bawl Your Eyes Out!
Yes, I watched it and yes, I completely bawled my eyes out.
You see, I have 3 kids but my oldest is 10 and I feel like he’s grown up too fast. This commercial is entirely too relatable.
It is beautiful and it is raw but man, it just hit me right in the feels.
I couldn’t stop crying for a solid 10 minutes. I also went and hugged my son even though he totally thought it was “uncool”.
The commercial portrays a teenage boy with an inner child wanting to do all the fun things with his mom but his teenage exterior is well, a teenager and defiant to it all.
It’s not until he gets his favorite meal at McDonald’s that his inner child comes out and he begins to do those holiday traditions and fun things with his mom.
Seriously, if you are sensitive to this sort of stuff, just skip right along. But if you REALLY want to watch it, you can watch it below. Just grab the tissues before you do.
