I’ve always loved Hallmark commercials because they’re so heartfelt without being sappy. They usually hit me right in my heart space and I might even shed a tear. Hallmark’s latest ad campaign encouraging people to go beyond saying “I love you,” is no different in making me feel all gooey inside.
The Youtube video features an irl lesbian couple, Eugenia and Corinna, talking about how they first met and saying the sweetest things about each other. This is the first time Hallmark has featured lesbians in a campaign.
The adorable couple are interviewed separately and both sincerely speak about their love for one another. Did I mention that both their glasses are so rad? Because they are. At one point, they’re asked to describe their feelings for each other without using the word love. Then they’re brought back together to watch what they had to say about each other.
The results are tears. They’re crying, you’re crying, everyone’s crying. Ugh, so cute.
Maybe it was just me, but Eugenia reminded me a little of Rachel Maddow. But, both are super adorable. Makes me want to find my Rachel Maddow.
I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but Eugenia did remind me of someone, I just didn’t know who. Rachel Maddow, makes a lot of sense! Yes, I should’ve known.
…no YOU’RE crying …:( ohmygod
This is the cutest, and I would like this story told again from the POV of the glasses.
Their glasses are so SO so rad. And that was a super sweet commercial.
awww this is so cute and feels actually authentic
Oh wow, this was too sweet and too real. Kudos to Hallmark for this.
I’m not crying you’re crying
I’m jealous of their glasses, their love, and their names. Eugenia and Corinna?! Are you serious?! Those are names given to characters in a sappy short story all about shared respect, love and eye-doctors.
Well I have no words for how adorable that was. Maybe there’s a card for that…
I CANT. SO MANY FEELINGS. GOING TO EXPLODE.
Really though, I f-ing hate Hallmark but this commercial is adorable and I wish I were dating both of them. Job well done.
Hallmark wants to keep me in a state of a glitter combustion because they had Kitty Bowl yesterday and I could not take it.
Now this!? I’m going to need these motherfuckers to chill because this was just too cute and I’m feeling slightly worried for my state of being.
awwwwwwwwww am crying! why do i cry with ads wuuuuuua
This is so beautiful.
No I’m not crying *wipes eyes* I just have *sniffles* a severe allege reaction *wipes eyes again* to ador-oh fuck It of course I’m crying
I watched this last night before bed and I had the most pleasant beautiful dream cuddling a mystery girl.
Soo adorable!! Makes me believe in LOVE
I’m both happy for them and really jealous of what they have! Also, I’ve developed a crush on the girl in the yellow sweater!
SIGH…I am the sappiest person in the world, guys. This really got to me. Aghhh I am so happy for them and I hope to find a similar happiness in the future.
i have a heart of stone, and i almost had tears form in my eyes!
This is just like that time I ate all those chocolate chip cookies forever…
omg I’m misty eyed, that was so cute :’)
oh the feelings!
Those glasses! Those smiles! The mutual love and happiness! Ahh… my heart just grew three sizes. That was wonderful.
oh damn it, this got me
I know it’s an ad and part of the greeting card industrial complex, but that was incredibly cute.
Is it a bad sign if the part of their relationship I want most is eating chocolate chip cookies with someone
*tears of jealousy*
*tears of happiness*
*tears because chocolate chip cookies*
*tears from adorableness*
*tears because beautiful filmmaking*
*tears of progress*
*tears of oh-my-goddess-glasses-and-sweater-is-so-hot*
Hallmark nails it. This is a great ad without being mawkish.
Ohmygod. Get married. Right now.
Or yunno, wait a few months and get married at A-Camp.
That’d be cool too.
ALL OF THE FEELINGS.
So adorable! So many tears! Damn you Hallmark!
