NEW YORK This JC Penney commercial sweetly celebrates the relationship between moms and daughters in honor of Mother’s Day. A woman walks down the street holding a girl’s hand. From shot to shot, we see the girl grow up … from grade-school age, to teenager, to a young adult and finally a mother herself. The soundtrack, an acoustic remake of the ’80s Yaz tune “Only You,” tells the story: “All I needed was the love you gave, all I needed for another day, and all I ever knew, only you.” The spot ends with the graying mother holding the hand of her daughter and granddaughter.
