Google makes another grab for heart strings

Google seems to be making a habit of making us get all emotional. In a recent effort in India, it told the story of how search can bring about a touching reunion.

A new TVC tell us the tale of French aircraft boffin Laurent Aigon, whose labour of love turned his son's bedroom into a Boeing 737 cockpit.

In this case, search was all about assembling the pieces of the puzzle. The spot is effective in showing another dimension of search beyond school project research and unearthing trivia to wow your workmates. Next time we Google something it may be with a tear in our eye.
