Is it just me, or are the "we're here for you" and "we're in this together" ads fading away and regular commercials coming back?  Maybe they finally figured out that people aren't listening anymore...just hitting the mute button.

I'm still seeing them, but if there is a decline, I think they probably just figure the message has reached its saturation point. It might also have something to do with the beginning of the reopening.

Either way, good riddance to all the warm, fuzzy, insincere, feel-good sappiness.

When we get to summer and things reopen, masks or not, these commercials will be completely gone. As much as I hate a lot of commercials I miss seeing ads for eat-in restaurants, outdoor attractions, concerts, movie trailers, etc. Normal life has ceased for now but it will be back.

that's unless there's a 2nd wave in the fall and then boom...'we're in this together' and 'in these uncertain times' return again - oh joy.

I'm still seeing quite a few. I think there might be less of these ads later this month, and by next month, there will be none left, hopefully for good.

They can only make so many of these tear jerking, 'feel good' ads for human solidarity--there are no OFFERS here and they really only sell image for these cos. Theres no MEAT to these Potatoes BUT...You won't see Toyota Jan frolicking in CROWDS or shilling to families no matter what anymore & the 'subtle' approach is the high road for these oh so virtuous 'institutions'-Wack Pack Progressive not withstanding
