Nicely done. "Aides" for those who don't know basically means "help"

Yet the commercial, against my wishes, left me unmoved.

Great TVC even if for me the story telling looks like the one from Ogilvy Johannesburgo that won Cannes this year. Just the story telling, I mean, the going backwards. Anyway, great TVC!

Is it just me or there's a little bit of déjà vu in this idea?

Not seen similar, and Spider, if you mean this http://www.youtube.com/user/thetopsyfoundation then it's an entirely different use of reverse storytelling for an entirely different aspect of Aids. The Ogilvy spot shows that the effects of Aids can be reversed with medication, and is a very real use of a real victim to show real progress. This spot takes a backwards drive through the hypothetical in a car made of Be Afraid of What You'll Lose, with destination Think in its satnav. Totally different. And to great effect - I was expecting to have to moan about an 80 year old with a 20 year-old's voice, and was impressed with the reason I didn't have to.
