Guinness’ new ad shows a group of guys playing basketball – in wheelchairs. The poignant twist at the end just may tug at your heartstrings.

The new spot has been watched more than 800,000 times on YouTube since it was released on Tuesday, and even made the front page of Reddit on Thursday under the post "One of the best alcohol commercials in awhile."

Sure, it’s an ad. Mashable even points out that it closely resembles this one.

I don’t want to spoil the ending, but it’s still a touching commentary on male friendships.
