Video: State Farm's 'Empire State Of Mind' (Remembering 9/11)

Today State Farm is debuting a heartwarming new commercial.  Directed by acclaimed New York City director Spike Lee, it features nearly 150 NYC area schoolchildren between the ages of 8 and 11.  They walk throughout the city, stopping at four firehouses along the way, singing 'Empire State of Mind'.  It's an extremely touching tribute to the city of New York, and to those that risked, and lost, their lives to save others ten years ago.

Grab a tissue.

For those who were wondering, many of the kids in the video were part of the PS22 Chorus at one time.
