A new commercial featuring Peyton Manning has the internet all abuzz.

In the spot, teammates, friends and family read from handwritten letters they’ve received from Manning over the years. His brother Eli and dad Archie are there. So are former coaches Tony Dungy and David Cutcliffe. A woman reads a letter Manning sent to her after the death of her son. ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen, who is battling cancer and broke the news of Manning’s retirement, is also featured. Teammates from both the Colts and Broncos also make appearances.
