Google Search Ad: Indian-Pakistani Reunion Video Goes Viral



The India-Pakistan partition in 1947 separated many friends and families overnight. In this Google advertisement which has gone viral in the past 24hrs, A granddaughter in India decides to surprise her grandfather on his birthday by reuniting him with his childhood friend (who is now in Pakistan) after over 6 decades of separation, with a little help from Google Search.

Reports suggest this is the first in the series of 5 advertisements.

I expected Facebook to make such advertisements! In real life this reunion would take much longer, as a search for a "park with ancient gate in Lahore" will return results more varied than what is shown in this one.

I like how Google is handling these sensitive feelings. Films/stories like these always inspired me.
Thank you Google for that lovely bond-up!

Exactly, getting a visa to India is no joke. Most visa Pakistani visa applications are rejected outright and even if you get it, it takes a lot of time. It's nothing like what is shown in the ad.

While searching for the keyword "jhajariya" I had to spell it exactly right or it wouldn't show anything. Even there there was only one Wikipedia article about it. Apparently it is a variant of the Imarti/Jaangiri.

Nice Ad.
Even if the Google results shown are not Realistic, The step towards improving the mindset of the residents of both countries is Realistic.

i met a pakistani once in train...he told me that he wanted to visit jaipur but coudnt cause he was denied visa for the city. according to him if some pakistani wants to visit a city in india, he first needs to go to local(indian) police office and ask for permission. and most of the time they just get permission for major cities only.

i dont know if he was right or not but this is what he told me.

@topic nice job done by google...
