Three men are sitting in a room. Suddenly one starts crying, one runs out of the room, and the third sighs and rolls his eyes.

The product that was advertised was not the product the man bought, correct? Correct Should we find out what the two products were? It's not essential to the puzzle, it would be better to focus on why an advert made him rush out and buy something which was not directly being advertised. The actual products in question could be a number of things.

Did he buy a medication? Food? Cosmetic?
Would he have been in danger, had he not bought the thing? Did he have some prescription for the thing, valid only until that day?
Did the particular scene in the commercial remind him of the similar scene that happened to him (like advert shows wife asking husband to buy X and that very morning his wife asked him to buy Y)?

Did the commercial refer to cancer issues? Did it refer to other major disease?
Was it a type of commercials that are made to have strong impact on viewers by relating to major health, social or environmental issues (like, there is a recent advert in my country in which underwear producer publishes posters showing women with cancer-related deformations and slogan "Enterprise X says all women are beautiful")?

Does the commercial remind the crying man of his deceased mother? someone else's deceased mother?

Does it remind the running man of buying a present for his mother?

Does the third man's partner expect a child? Does he have children? Does he have living mother? Does he know his mother?

Does he not like the commercialization of Mother's Day? Does he oppose the idea that you need a special day to show your love for your mother? Does he work in a field related to Mother's Day (flowers, cosmetics etc)?

*****SPOILER*****
The men are watching TV either on or shortly before Mother's Day. An advert comes on with a Mother's Day theme. The first man is reminded of his own mother who died recently and starts crying, the second remembers he forgot to buy his mother a present and runs out to do so, and the third is fed up with the constant stream of Mother's Day related products and advertising that he has been bombarded with recently.

Thanks for playing, and well done Doriana!
