Get out the tissues. This commercial for a Thailand-based insurance company just may bring a tear to your eye.

In the above clip, we see a man going about his day, giving money to the poor and food to stray animals, and even taking time to look out for some sickly plants along the side of the road.

"What does he get in return for this?" the narrator asks as cynical onlookers shake their heads in disapproval. "He won't get richer, won't appear on TV....What he does receive are emotions. He witnesses happiness."

The payoff comes when a homeless young girl the man had given money to is gone from her street corner one day and is found  skipping down the street in a brand-new school uniform.

The ad may never be as popular as the Bar Rafaeli commercial that's been banned in Israel, but with over a million YouTube views, it's sure to inspire some random acts of kindness.

Bar Refaeli is too hot for Israel.

The gorgeous model is featured in a local television commercial for fashion brand Hoodies. But The Second Authority for Television and Radio in that country has banned the spot from playing during primetime.

So, what’s the issue?

The ad features Refaeli and Red Orbach, a famous Israeli puppet who fronts a fake rock group called Red Band.

In the following footage, we see Orbach imagining a few fantasies with the blonde bombshell, including a threesome; a jaunt in the hot tub; and a game of strip poker.

We never see Bar Refaeli nude, however, though Orbach's privates get blurred out at one point. Watch now:

Think Israel is overreacting? Or is this ad crossing a line?

Here we go again.

Following the Coke Super Bowl commercial that was slammed as unpatriotic because it featured various ethnicities singing "America the Beautiful," along with the Cheerios commercial that received flak for starring an interracial family, Honey Maid has come out with a new "Wholesome" campaign ad.

It is comprised of a gay couple, a single father, a guy with tattoos and, naturally, many graham crackers.

The tagline? "Honey Maid, everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family."

Said the senior marketing director for Mondelez (which owns Honey Maid):

Kraft macaroni and cheese, Vanilla Ice and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. If that's not a recipe for a great TV ad, we don't know what is.

If it wasn't obvious, all three of those things have joined forces for a commercial promoting Kraft's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mac and cheese shapes.

The spot finds the rapper stocking shelves (probably not too big a stretch these days) and reviving his "Ninja Rap" from the 1991 sequel to TMNT.

The song, from the ever-so-brief peak of Ice's popularity, features the the familiar refrain, "Go Ninja Go!" and memorably showcased him in a cameo.

Back to the ad, it's as random and awkward as it sounds, but it owns that fact.

On Super Bowl Sunday, a certain Coke commercial raised the ire of many racists on the Internet.

It featured individuals from different ethnicities and backgrounds singing "America the Beautiful" in their native language, causing some to Tweet that this was a disgraceful, unpatriotic ad.

It brought out the worst in people.

But now it's at least brought out the best of the Internet.

Check out the following parody to see a commercial with the same premise… but one that uses such languages as Pig Latin, Klingon and Dothraki

Pretty great, right?

Sunday's Coca-Cola Super Bowl commercial, which featured U.S. citizens singing “America the Beautiful” in various languages, was generally well received.

Just not by the Twitter-verse, where many users were live-tweeting the event and quickly lambasted the brand as un-American, or even a terrorist organization.

Seriously. People were aghast that there are human beings living in America who don't speak English, and that Coke might feature them in advertising.

Check out 23 of the most racist, disapproving, confused and hate-filled Tweets about the controversial Coca-Cola Super Bowl commercial below ...

The Seattle Seahawks easily won NFL Super Bowl XLVIII, destroying the Denver Broncos by a score of 43-8.

But let's face it: all anyone is talking about today are those Super Bowl commercials.

The '80s were resurrected via RadioShack and Fulll House. Many cute dogs were depicted. And Coca-Cola sparked an online debate over diverse individuals singing "America the Beautiful."

Last June, Cheerios came under fire for airing an ad that featured a biracial family having breakfast.

YouTube was actually forced to shut down its Comment section due to online bigots dropping terms such as "Nazis," "troglodytes" and "racial genocide."

So how has the company responding? By running back the same actors in a spot that will premiere this Sunday during the Super Bowl. Good for Cheerios!

Titled "Gracie," the commercial stars a a black father, white mother, and biracial daughter and teases a new addition to the family. Actually, two new additions. Watch now:

Where will this ad rank among the most popular of The Big Game?
