The Olympics are fast approaching (July 27!) and while the world is getting ready to cheer on the Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, Procter & Gamble is sending out its own Olympic-size tribute to moms.

The video shows how having a supportive mom helped the Olympic tikes become Olympic contenders. Clearly the clip is meant as a bit of promotion for the Procter & Gamble brands (which generally cater to home care and family hygiene) but the video is much more than simply a commercial. Kudos to Procter & Gamble for focusing on Olympic spirit and for including a variety of countries and cultures in the video. Check out the video and get ready to have some heartstrings pulled.

Does Procter & Gamble get a winning score or a slap on their wrist for their video? Let us know in the comments below.
