[Ad Spot] Facebook – The Things That Connect Us

I know right! An ad spot from Facebook, almost seems unreal. Not as intriguing as you would expect but since it has gone viral I thought worth posting it anyway. Enjoy.

From the Zuck:

“Celebrating a billion people is very special to me. It’s a moment to honor the people we serve. For the first time in our history, we’ve made a brand video to express what our place is on this earth. We believe that the need to open up and connect is what makes us human. It’s what brings us together. It’s what brings meaning to our lives. Facebook isn’t the first thing people have made to help us connect. We belong to a rich tradition of people making things that bring us together. Today, we honor this tradition. We honor the humanity of the people we serve. We honor the everyday things people have always made to bring us together: Chairs, doorbells, airplanes, bridges, games. These are all things that connect us. And now Facebook is a part of this tradition of things that connect us too. I hope you enjoy this video as much as we do. Thanks for helping connect a billion people.”

    Every time someone plays this ad a rock star dies, a client makes a logo bigger, they kill off a character in Game of Thrones, Morne Steyn kicks another up-and-under, a Hipster is born, and another Rebecca Black song is released.

      The Troll speaks the truth. Am sure they had a marketing budget to create something that would be more intriguing, but no. A chair

    Just sat in a chair and felt the warmth of a million arses that sat there before me. My arse is connected to your arse. (and if you shake G. Whitfield’s hand, you are connected to his arse)
