A video has been taking the Internet by storm this week, and by storm we mean people are crying so much about it that it feels as though it’s actually raining.
The video is a spec ad for Johnnie Walker whisky made by Daniel Titz and Dorian Lebherz, two students at the Film Academy of Baden-Württemberg. It’s already collected over 800,00 views at the time this article was written.
“We wanted to create an emotional film that tells the story of two brothers that go back to the most important places of their youth,” Lebherz told AdWeek in an interview about the viral spec. “We love to connect emotional storytelling with great cinematic pictures. So we followed the two brothers on the paths of their youth through the Scottish highlands. We tried to integrate the brand. The story itself is based on the message ‘Keep Walking.’”
Take a look at the video:
How does it feel to cry so many tears?

Here’s the lovely poem that was read in the video:
Walking the roads of our youth,
Through the land of our childhood, our home, and our truth,
Be near me, guide me, always stay beside me so I can be free.
Let’s roam this place, familiar and vast,
Our playground of green frames, our past,
We were wanderers. Never lost, always home,
And every place was fenceless and time was endless.
Our ways were always the same.
Calm my demons and walk with me brother,
Until our roads lead us away from each other.
And if your heart’s full of sorrow, keep walking. Don’t rest.
And promise me from heart to chest to never let your memories,
I will always be alive and by your side. In your mind,
I am free.
