Never before has a bunch of skeletons been so heartwarming.

A new ad from the Ad Council shows people of all different ages, genders, races, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities and religions coming together behind a digital screen.

The viewers only see their skeletons at first kissing, dancing and hugging with Mary Lambert’s “She Keeps Me Warm” playing in the background, until the real people step out to reveal themselves.

The spot is part of their “Love Has No Labels” campaign, and it already has over 1.5 million views since it was released on Tuesday. It was shot on Valentine’s Day of this year.

From the Ad Council:

Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues.

You will cry. So be prepared.

From their Facebook page:

People all around us were making fun of the restaurant & how bad the service was. Yeah, it was pretty terrible. But, it was very obvious that the issue was being short staffed, not the server. He was running around like crazy and never acted annoyed with any table. At one point we counted he had 12 tables plus the bar. More than any one person could handle! As I sat there and watched him run back & forth and apologize for the wait, I said to Steven… Wow, this used to be us. Waiting tables. I don't miss it at all and I never loved that job. I did it for the tips. Steven and I agreed it would feel good to make this guys night when he would probably be getting minimal to no tips due to slow service. We walked out before he saw this and I'm not posting this for a pat on the back. I'm just sharing this as a friendly reminder to think of the entire situation, before you judge. And always always always remember where you came from.

Back in April, at the request of his 87-year-old grandfather, Redditor stevieboy1984 turned to the /r/PicRequests subreddit to see if anyone could clean up a scanned JPEG image file of his grandfather's World War II-era photo taken during his service in the Navy as a submarine sonar/radar operator. After a number of people offered their photoshop wizardries to help its restoration, stevieboy1984 showed his grandfather six variations before handing him a framed version of top commenter unhi's submission. Here's a video of the big reveal. Grab a box a tissues, manly tears are coming.

The story goes that these two news anchors started doing silly handshakes during commercial breaks on their nightly news program to keep the mood up after all the "death and destruction" they report. Sounds like something all of us could use!
