Dishwashing soap targeting snowperson set

Magistral- Snowman

Grey Argentina's Pygmalion-esque ad for Magistral dishwashing soap is well made, but the sudden, heartbreaking finish is cheapened somewhat by the glib tagline. You'd also think the snowman would have had the boiler removed from his house sometime in the distant past, before he went to all the work of building his one true love and having her do his housework. Forgive me, but examining this ad's internal logic is the only thing keeping me from sobbing like a child on repeat viewings.
