This Dove ad really opened my eyes.  I think this video should be shown to girls all over the world.  Wonderful video!

The rainbow Oreos could be made for sale if the Oreos were the same but the filling was one of the six colors and each package contained all six colors, instead of the huge Oreo displayed in the photo.

When Justyce was here she found "Dumb Ways to Die" online and it's hilarious!  But it is one of those songs that get stuck in your head...you've been warned!

Very well done ad, will make people think. But after looking at the actual sketches I couldn't help but wonder how much the first drawing is biased towards unattractiveness for the sake of the commercial. For instance, all of the first drawings make each person's head seem squashed or short. Did the artist employ certain techniques to make the person look more unattractive than they probably really are? Food for thought.

Tedious, feel-good nonsense, 60 seconds style.  Gives a new meaning to slice of life.  You've got one minute.  Smile.  Hey, the world looks better?  How could you pass up the ad involving a one-legged, lisping Jewish Black transgender child who makes friends with a blind and stuttering Puerto Rican dwarf, showing that humanity has more in common than superficial appearance.  That one had me in tears.
