Bell Canada’s latest heartfelt ad, titled “Connecting Canada”, takes the viewer through the company’s roots as The Bell Telephone Company from 1880s, playing the famous sentence of Canadian founder of Bell and inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, speaking to his assistant “Mr. Watson—come here—I want to see you.” (Watson was in the next room).

From here, it is a trip down memory lane, showing clips of Expo ’67 to the Olympics to the Blackberry to present day VR offerings. Check it out below:

The ad ends to say “We’ve come a long way together.”
