A pro-LGBTQ Sprite ad ran on Argentina's social media channels last Friday to coincide with Buenos Aires Pride — or Marcha de Orgullo, Queerty reported.

Over the touching sounds of "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the musical "Carousel," the ad depicts smiling family members helping their young relatives get ready for the Pride event.

Among the clips are a mom helping her son apply makeup:

Queerty said the first one in 1992 attracted only about 300 people, some of whom wore masks, but that last weekend's festival was attended by about 300,000.
