Dtac's father-daughter moment touches hearts in Thailand

THAILAND - A father's tearjerking first show of affection for his newborn daughter has become something of a viral hit for telco Dtac and Y&R Thailand, exceeding 8 million views since its debut on 30 June.

‘The Power of Love’, a two-minute short, has racked up more than 7 million views in its English-subtitled version, plus another 120,000 for versions subtitled in other languages, as well as 1 million views on Youku, according to the agency.

The latest ad for brand, which has a history of using cuteness in its marketing, has drawn comparisons to an earlier ad that also put technology in proper perspective versus human contact.
