This is an old commercial from Google that they used to promote their Chrome browser. It shows a father creating an email account for his newborn and then follows him as he emails her various milestones throughout her youth. It ends at the beginning with him hesitating to type the word “Dad” for the very first time.
I remember seeing it when it first came out in 2011 and thinking it was pretty good. I did not have a kid then, so I could never appreciate it at the level that those that did could.
Flash forward to now.
I watched it again with a 5 month old in my lap, and it’s a far more emotional experience.
P.S. Why are my eyes leaking?
