A still from the ad

A three-minute long video advertisement released online by Shan Masala has gone viral. The commercial’s theme is Eid and how one longs to be with their loved ones on special occasions like Eid. The emotional ad will leave you in tears, especially if you’re a Desi living abroad. I watched it twice and was in tears both time, maybe because I can relate; I lived abroad for a brief time and spent one Eid without my loved ones.

Without further ado, watch the commercial and leave your comments below.

This longer version of the ad appears to be for internet only, you’ll see a shorter version on TV.
