Nokia "Best friends" by Mother

The launch ad for the new Nokia 7 is a nostalgic tale of two best friends who have always relied on each other.

From facing school bullies to breaking down in the middle of nowhere, the friends depend on each other as well as various models of Nokia phones to get them out of trouble through the years. The story culminates with one friend who usually comes to the rescue turning to the other for help with a lift to the hospital for the birth of his son. Created by Mother and directed by Justin Chadwick through Tomboy Films, the ad ends with the tagline, "When we rely on each other, we need a phone that we can rely on."
