Walmart, through their ‘Live Better’ series of commercials, has been showing us how we can all live better by shopping at Walmart. In the latest commercial of the series, they have hit the jackpot with a very moving holiday commercial with actors portraying our troops overseas and a very awesome little boy who makes a wish for his Dad. This commercial is very reminiscent of the Budweiser ad from a few Super Bowls ago which had a bunch of troops being applauded through the airport as they arrive home.
Every time I see this commercial, it just tugs at the heart strings. That to me is what makes a great commercial and how I determined it to be the best commercial of 2009.
