google chrome commercial: "dear sophie"

There is no way you can watch this without getting a lump in you throat: Dear Sophie. Check out this Google Chrome commercial featuring an Asian American dad using various tools on the web to share memories with his daughter as she grows up. I don't know if "Daniel Lee" is a real dude, or if these are actually his videos and emails... but man, it's effective:

Seriously, fighting back tears. Dammit, Google. You really know how to make a grown man cry. It's like their "Graduation" commercial all over again -- that one had me blubbering like an idiot too. They're also currently running this great It Gets Better ad. Gotta give you some props, Google.
