Description: 

Everyone helps someone nearby, not everyone helps someone far away. This was the premise of success for the Gold Young Lions winners in Film at this year's Cannes International Festival of Creativity, Omar Sotomayor and Gaston Soto of Lapiz USA, Leo Burnett's independently operated Hispanic advertising agency. In under 60 seconds with no more than a Nokia N8 camera, each team was challenged with the objective of creating awareness for children in need. Winners Omar Sotomayor and Gaston Soto of Lapiz distilled the cause by simply, yet profoundly exhibiting a single thought: Everyone helps someone nearby, not everyone helps someone far away. They did this by walking through town with grocery bags and falling in front of bystanders. The bystanders were quick to help and then they were given a card with the Global Angel message.

This is really terrible. If I help someone and then find out I was tricked into it so they can advertise something to me, it would just make me angry, not guilty. Same reason I hate someone on the street pretending to be interested in talking to you about something and then they try to get you to go shop at some spa... ugh.
