Pass It On®

About This TV Commercial

A call from a child in the middle of a busy day at work can be awkward. But calling your father between periods during a hockey game—well, it could be embarrassing especially if the request is for a bedtime nursery rhyme. Our father in this case obliges his young daughter. A moment made even more charming by the great song "Do You Believe In Magic" underscoring the fact that love isn't always convenient, but is appreciated forever. Love... Pass It On.
