With Mother’s Day not far off in many countries (May 13) Proctor & Gamble — a Fortune 500 US firm associated with many household products and a major sponsor of the London Olympics this year — has released this terrific video. In case you did not notice it on our Video Choice spot or on our Facebook page, here it is again. The following is P&G’s spiel:

Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. But it’s also the best.

This Procter & Gamble commercial honors everything that all moms do to help their children succeed by showcasing the amazing moms behind Olympic athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games. The hardest job in the world is truly the best job in the world.
