Extra Gum recently released this advertisement, featuring the love story of a fictional couple, Sarah and Juan. In less than a week since it was posted to YouTube, it has garnered over 3.5 million views (and counting) and has been shared on a variety of entertainment websites. Along with the moving storyline, the ad features a hauntingly beautiful rendition of Elvis Presley's 1961 hit "I Can't Help Falling In Love" by Haley Reinhart (famous for her work with Postmodern Jukebox).
It seems the internet can't get enough of this beautiful love story, and it's giving people pretty conflicting emotions - while everyone seems to be in agreement that the commercial is undeniably touching, they are also baffled by the fact that a commercial for chewing gum just made them tear up. Don't worry guys, you're not alone.
