The song behind Toyota's tear-jerker Super Bowl and Winter Olympics commercial starring Paralympian Lauren Woolstencroft now has an even heavier visual.
Between its Super Bowl debut to frequent replay during the Winter Olympics, you might be running out of tissue watching Toyota's highly emotional commercial which tells the story of eight-time Paralympic gold medalist Lauren Woolstencroft.
Now, the heart-tugging ballad that soundtracks the minute-long spot -- titled "Stronger Than I've Ever Been (Piano Edit)" by rising vocalist Kaleena Zanders and produced by dirty Monster -- may just have you running to the store to buy more.
The three-minute coming-of-age music video to the heartfelt anthem centers around a young biracial teen's journey of coming out to his parents, unsurprisingly causing a rift between him and his father. The clip also highlights the special relationship between mother and son that many young members of the LGTBQ community might identify with. While the story line isn't new to many queer youth, Zanders' soaring vocal is a reflection of her own bravery and struggle when she came out to her parents.
