Using time lapse to illustrate the nature of parenthood has just as much pull on our heartstrings as just about any other medium. A new spot for Subaru shows us exactly how powerful it can be.
In a video titled Making Memories, we watch a father run the usual parental chore of cleaning out arbitrary items forgotten by the kids — articles of clothing, maybe a book or magazine, and a few oddities left behind by his daughter. He pulls out a pink crayon, and as he turns he remembers a vision of his small daughter running to the car after her first day of school. Next, a long-discarded hospital band from that time in middle school she broke her leg during a soccer match. A corsage he finds reminds him of her first high school dance. Boxing them all, and putting them into the trunk of another car, he passes the keys — the last item — to his young adult daughter, sending her off into the world.
These special moments of parental nostalgia make up some of our favorites here at LittleThings. Whether it’s time-lapse pregnancies, tributes, or memory highlights like in the video below, they’re always great at reminding us to treasure the moments we have with our loved ones.
