Kleenex ® has decided to embrace the fact that we say "Kleenex warning!" or "Kleenex alert" about emotional things, and serve up a really emotional ad where former choir students surprise their teacher with a special rendition of amazing grace. The former students of music teacher Gabrielyn Watson sing her praises in her school's hallway, and pretty soon everyone needs Kleenex. Her former students from several years past all have beautiful voices, even the opening "Amazing Grace" sets Gabrielyn off.

With this Kleenex thanks all teachers, while reminding us why we need Kleenex®.

Much better to push this reason for use than that other one. Tssk Tssk! I mean when we have a cold, silly. Get your mind out of the gutter.

    This still brings me to tears and I can't believe it's still flowing out there on the internet. Thanks GWF
