We miss our parents when they are not around. And while some of us have access to phone-calls or Skype, when one of your parents happens to be in outer space, it’s not exactly easy to communicate.

For Stephanie, a teenager from Houston, Texas, getting in touch with her dad isn’t an easy task, since he’s an astronaut at the International Space Station (ISS). Here’s where Hyundai came in and helped Stephanie out.

As part of their campaign to help Stephanie, Hyundai put together eleven Hyundai Genesis cars and wrote out a special message for her father in the sandy terrain of Texas.  The video was uploaded on April 9 and in just 10 days it has got over 24 million hits.

Watch the video below to see how her father reacted:

Interestingly, the Guinness Book of World Records has now recognised Stephanie’s message as “largest tyre track image” on earth.

No doubt what Hyundai did was very cool and touching for Stephanie, but let’s not forget that this emotional video is ultimately a way to promote the brand.
