1.Toyota "Good Odds"

Topping the list is the commercial that has a great emotional and social impact. The ad tackles the very inspiring journey of Lauren Woolstencroft, an 8-time Canadian Paralympic gold medalist who was born without feet.

The one-minute commercial is her story of perseverance from infant to adulthood, that raised feelings of amazement, warmth, happiness, and inspiration.

The ad is also a part of the "Let's Go Places" campaign and "Start Your Impossible" Olympic campaign. This leads to the brand being praised as the provider of "mobility" solutions, by going the extra mile to include technologies like wearable robotic leg braces for people with the same cases as Lauren.

This ad that let us feel extreme emotions is brought by the dual effort of Saatch & Saatchi in the United States and Dentsu in Tokyo. This commercial does not advertise a particular model but the whole brand of Toyota.

2. KIA Stinger "Feel Something Again"

The Steven Tyler Big Game is a new compass for the South Korean manufacturer and for the sporty sedan in general. The ad begins with the old and haggard-looking Tyler entering the Stinger and reversing speedily around a very dusty racetrack and somehow, as he drives backward, he travels back in time 40 years ago, during his youthful days.

3. Audi " The Comeback"

This commercial is not as serious as it may seem, but it's very interesting and somewhat funny in most parts. The story revolves around the life of the Tyrannosaurus rex (popularly called T-rex) that experiences the ups and downs of life in the fast track lanes.

The very dangerous T-rex that used to cause chaos, danger, terror, and mayhem among its contemporaries is now living in the modern and digital era. In this modern age, the T-rex is under extreme pain and devastation after being the subject of social media derision caused by humans. It's like the T-rex versus the whole Twittersphere and we all know who's in the disconcerting edge.

The ad goes to show that even the fierce-skinned predator cannot withstand cyberbullying. Although the T-rex shows a tough and strong appearance, it conceals its sensitive and delicate side.

But the depression and anxiety he experienced are staved off because he came to know the Audi piloted driving that brought back the joy to the T-rex.

It is said that this commercial will make you feel emotions you never knew existed. It's very catchy and that made you feel mixed pity and humor towards the main subject–the T-rex. It's also a very memorable commercial.

4. Hyundai Genesis "First Date"

This ad got a lot of momentum throughout the whole duration of the commercial. Well, the story started with a parked Hyundai Genesis in the driveway. A teenage boy appeared and rung the doorbell that was later on answered by the teenage girl.

The girl's father (portrayed by Kevin Hart) insisted to use his new car, the Hyundai Genesis, handing the keys to the boy. The moment the two teenagers left, Kevin uses the car finder app.

Allowing him to track all the places that the two teenagers went to, from the movie theater to the carnival and the last stop, the romantic spot wherein the boy was about to kiss the girl but he noticed Kevin dangling from a helicopter and giving him the warning look.

From the family dog, a baby doll, his newly served food down to the new Passat that was recently parked by his dad in their garage. The best scene was the last part, where the kid looks so surprised in the thought that he was able to control the car with the Dark Side.

Not knowing that his dad was the one responsible for it by the use of the car control keys. The ad ends with the father giving 'the look' to his wife while they're busy watching from the kitchen. This is such a short but classic ad that completes our top 5.
