Back in May of this year, NFL star receiver Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals, attained his Bachelor’s in Communication degree from the University of Phoenix, marking the completion of a promise he made to his mother in 2003 before he lost her to breast cancer. In the years following her death, he revealed that he would call his childhood home in St. Paul, Minnesota, to hear her voice recorded on the answering machine. In the TV spot “Voicemail,” Larry calls home, and this time leaves a message, thanking her for inspiring him not only as a student but as a son and father.

Larry’s message to his mom was unrehearsed. His message in the spot was the first and only take filmed.
