  • Comments Off on Why Does Extra Gum Want Everyone To Cry?!

We may need a moment before writing this post. Seriously, what are you trying to do to us here, Extra gum? We began watching this commercial out of mild curiosity, and ended up almost bawling our eyes out and calling our parents afterward!

Don’t believe us? Click play to watch for yourself the emotional roller coaster ride of a father-daughter relationship played out over the years through gum-wrapper origami and see if you don’t get at least a little misty-eyed.

We dare you. We double dare you! Our only real question for Extra gum would be this: Why are you trying so hard to get people to buy Kleenex instead?

  • Comments Off on WATCH: Why This Bride’s Walk Down The Aisle Was Extra Special

One bride was determined to walk down the aisle on her wedding day, no matter what the doctors told her.

Alissa Boyle Grimes was injured trying to help a man whose car had flipped over on the highway, and doctors told her she would never be able to walk again. But Grimes never gave up on her desire to walk down the aisle.

And according to WTOV, she was able to make that dream a reality.

“It’s like I met every goal that I’ve had since the accident and this is my last one and I did it,” said Grimes. “It hasn’t been easy, but I just take it a day at a time and I’m glad I’m here.”

Grimes credits her husband, Nathan Grimes, with encouraging her along the road to recovery.

She isn’t the only bride to overcome an injury on her wedding day. In August, a paralyzed bride from Toledo, Ohio used a walker to help her make her way to her waiting groom.

Check out the video above to see more on Grimes and to watch her triumphant walk down the aisle.
