In Google Earth Ad, Man Is Tearfully Reunited With His Long-Lost Family

This advertisement cleverly underlies the touching story of Saroo Brierley, a man who finds his family after more than 25 years of separation, with the remarkable technology of Google Earth.

Brierley was born in India, but unfortunate circumstances caused him to become stranded on board a runaway train. He was adopted by an Australian family whom he lived with for the next 26 years, but Google’s technology enabled him to ‘survey’ the streets of India and jog the memory of his past.

Harnessing the technology of Google Earth and snippets of memories of what his hometown looked like, Brierley embarked on the journey to find his way home.
