The touching PSA was made to remind children about showing gratitude to their parents now, not later, because time won't wait. Don't wait till it's too late.
Near the end of the video, these quiet verses appeared from a famous song, When You Are Old, by Chinese lyricist and singer Zhao Zhao:

When the hair has turned grey
You feel sleepy and dazed
When you are old
When you can't walk anymore
Dozing off beside the fireplace
You reminisce your youth
