Mother’s Day Ads To Make You Laugh, Cry, & Remind You To Call Your Mom

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and I wanted to take a few moments to share some of the ads that have been released through the years to celebrate the holiday. There have been some lovely commercials put together to pay tribute to moms out there. Many of them fall into the “super sappy” category but, then again, this holiday’s a good time for that.

(Note: Not ALL of these are sappy. In particular, please enjoy the hilarious-not-sappy Mr. T “Treat Your Mother Right” ditty. And enjoy his incredible shorts.)

  • First up, the reigning champion of all sappy-in-the-best-way holiday commercials, Publix:
  • I appreciate this spot from Samsung, which is so on-point and hilarious (sorry, moms, but it’s true), yet wrapped in a heartfelt message:
  • We WILL treat our mothers right, Mr. T. Thanks for the reminder. (This isn’t a commercial, and I have no clue where it’s from, but it obviously made the cut.):
  • Nice job, as always, Google:
  • Do you have a #PartyHardMom?:
  • HAHAHA, SNL! (Please excuse the quality of the video. Still worth watching if you haven’t seen this sketch.):
  • This spot from Johnson’s Baby is adorable, and told from baby’s perspective:
  • Okay, so this Minute Maid one’s for parents in general — not specifically moms — but it definitely makes the list. It’s long — four minutes — but it’s worth watching. Such a good reminder of how easy it is to tell the people we love how important they are to us:

Happy (almost) Mother’s Day, everyone! (Get to shopping — fast — if you haven’t gotten Mom a gift yet!)
