The video “My Dad’s Story”, features a young girl reciting an essay about her father. The girl starts her essay on a lighthearted note, describing her father as the “sweetest daddy in the world.”

Happy scenes of the father and daughter playing together are later followed by scenes of the father working menial jobs to earn money for his family. The daughter reveals that he “lies about having a job” and “lies about having money,” but does so out of love for his daughter. The ad ends with the message, “A child’s future is worth every sacrifice.”
