Who ever ok'd this commercial should be FIRED! Every hospital employee is screaming when the advisor asks about his mother, " How's your Mother?" it's obvious if is she is not dead now she will be soon. Worst commercial I have ever seen. Do your company a favor and can it immediately

Wow, I thought it was just me who reacted badly to the "How's your mother?" comment. That's exsctly what I was thinking.

Commercial does nothing for me. But the waterfront scene at the very end is spectacular. Anyone know what city that is, or is it CGI?

I think it's Vancouver from Stanley Park.

Is that Kyle MacLaughlin , the Mayor of Portlandia?

Actually it is Vancouver, B.C., but instead of Stanley Park, the shot is from the semi-circular promenade of George Wainborn Park looking south across False Creek towards the Spruce Harbour Marina.

You are seeing things. The nurse is black, not the babies.
