About This TV Commercial

The tug on your heart that comes from a child’s innocent question, “When are you coming home?” and the awkward answer, “Soon,” leaves you wanting to get yourself back home…instantly. Lone Star’s song “I’m Already There” comes very close to virtually fulfilling that wish. We hope you will enjoy a reflective and uplifting moment with this video. Being There… Pass It On.

Video Transcript

BOY: Mom, when is daddy coming home?
MOM: Daddy misses us too honey.
(phone rings)
MOM: Hello. Hi honey.

He called her on the road
From a lonely cold hotel room

DAD: Hi honey.

Just to hear her say ‘I love you’ one more time

MOM: I love you.

A little voice came on the phone
Said ‘Daddy when you coming home?’

MOM: He’s right here.
BOY: Dad when you gonna come home?

He said the first thing that came to his mind
I’m already there

DAD: I’m already there.

Take a look around
I’m the sunshine in your hair
I’m the shadow on the ground
I’m the whisper in the wind
I’m your imaginary friend
And I know I’m in your prayers
Oh I’m already there

DAD: Hey buddy.
BOY: (giggles)

VOICE OVER: Being There... Pass It On.
A message from The Foundation for a Better Life

Being There. Pass It On!

Ashlynn, Florida

I love this! I always miss my father till he gets home. This made me cry!

Thank You for another inspiration commercial. It is good to know that the Dad was there spiritual and physical. Just the glitter in the little boys eyes and the way he greeted his dad is more than a happy child to see dad. The little boy is overjoyed knowing that dad was coming home.
