It's not often that a lingerie commercial will leave you a blubbering mess, so take note of this new ad from Asian lingerie manufacturer Wacoal. The "My Beautiful Woman" ad is in Thai, but the subtitles tell the tale clearly enough. And, remarkably, it's based on a true story.
Jane is a young mother – too young, in her peers' eyes. Word is she had a baby with her "sugar daddy" at the age of 18. Every day after school, she runs ahead of her classmates to pick up her little girl, June.
Just when a woman should be experiencing freedom and self-discovery, Jane spends day and night caring for her June. Taking her to school and picking her up. Feeding and clothing her. The little girl is the center of her life. But Jane is not who she appears to be.
The video is seven minutes long, but I just can't spoil it for you. It's a stunning example of selflessness that clearly echoes themes in the Bible – all in a lingerie ad. SHARE it!
