Tom & Graham

1_5starsGraham5This is a very heartwarming and sensible commercial. I thought it was touching to see such an unexpected duo overcome obstacles together. I liked that they were able to show a story that relates to the fact that Kleenex tissues can dry tears of joy and sadness. They shared a feel-good story that was entertaining.

1_5starsTom5You’ll want to have some Kleenex handy when you watch this heartwarming commercial. Kleenex knew what they were doing when featuring this odd couple in their commercial. I’ve already watched it three times – I just wanted to see the “Unlikely Best Friends” again…and again…and again.


Meet the Authors

The 18 year old

A rising student of film, Graham measures all advertising against his favorite movie scenes. So a commercial with a good car chase plays well. Better with an explosion. And funny. It should be funny. So a speeding car that explodes in an amusing way will sell product.

The 80 year old

Graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Business School, Tom doesn’t let his Ivy League education interfere with an appreciation for inane advertising campaigns. He more than appreciates a poodle in a business suit selling cleaning products. He also enjoys talking babies.
