    Virgin Mobile's ad, starring Susie Essman (from Curb Your Enthusiasm), is the clear winner. Bonus appearance by a knife-wielding Overly Attached Girlfriend.

    EASILY, the best Mother's Day ad I've seen this year.
    "I spent two hours a day for six months clenching my snapdragon with a rubber ball..."

    As opposed to Facebook, Google has Human tech advertising down to a science.

    3. Kobo eReader

    Near perfect commercial that perfectly ties in with the product (a universal ad problem).

    4. Sport Chek

    Sport Chek is Canada's largest sports equipment retailer.
    Spot stars Canadian Olympic hockey player Meaghan Mikkelson and her mother, doing what mothers do best.

    5. BONUS: Laina, aka Overly Attached Girlfirend, sends you running into your mother's arms, gentlemen.
