Take a Chance, Play Your Part, Make Romance, It Might Break Your Heart

I love the commercial that's on the air right now for Dockers. Two street cars travelling in opposite directions stop next to each other. A young man looks out the window and notices a young woman in the other train, who looks up, sees him, and smiles. He hestitates for a second, then grabs his stuff and runs out of the car. He sprints around to the other train and bangs on the door to be let on, but the heartless driver doesn't let him on and the train pulls away. You can tell by the look on his face that he's disappointed and also a little mad because his own train pulled away at the same time and now he's going to have to find another way to get wherever he was going or else wait for the next train. As the tail end of the train pulls away, we see the girl, looking similarly disappointed and mad. She looks up, sees him, and breaks into a huge grin, just as he also looks up and sees her and breaks into a smile.

It's cute. It's sweet. It's romantic. But it's not treacly or obnoxious. It makes me smile everytime I see it.
