Never before has a bunch of skeletons been so heartwarming.
A new ad from the Ad Council shows people of all different ages, genders, races, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities and religions coming together behind a digital screen.
The viewers only see their skeletons at first kissing, dancing and hugging with Mary Lambert’s “She Keeps Me Warm” playing in the background, until the real people step out to reveal themselves.
The spot is part of their “Love Has No Labels” campaign, and it already has over 1.5 million views since it was released on Tuesday. It was shot on Valentine’s Day of this year.
From the Ad Council:
Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.
You will cry. So be prepared.

“We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired,” they write to their viewers.

At IWA Midsouth's "Big Ass Christmas Bash" last week in Indiana, wrestler Ace Perry had a surprise for his number one fan Amanda.
The high school junior who has autism, has been to every one of his matches and has even reached out to him on Facebook.
So when he asked her if she would go to prom with him, she was – of course – ecstatic.
Ma'ake Kemoeatu has always been on the lookout for his brother Chris. As the eldest of seven siblings, Ma'ke felt it was always his duty to look after the rest of his family - going so far as to receive a game suspension after improperly providing Chris textbooks to finish his schooling.
So when Chris began suffering greater and greater problems from his kidney - flareups and near-constant pain that nearly prevented him from playing the game and forced him to retire early - Ma'ake stepped up and provided the organ for transplant.
According to their doctors, the two players are recovering well. Clearly this is one family willing to step up for one another.
