In the last few months, Skype has been on a roll with its
“Stay Together” ad campaign, which features
videos of people from near and far connecting via Skype and creating long-lasting, sustainable friendships and relationships.
Often, they’re pretty touching.

Just check out the latest “Stay Together” ad, which we first saw on Hypervocal.

It tells the story of two girls — Sarah from Indiana and Paige from Auckland, New Zealand.

It’s a heartwarming ad:
