It's hard not to think of the Philips Carousel Commercial when watching this.

not only phillips, but halo 3 as well.
it's beautiful, but i don't find that effect in commercial appropriate for "waiting". no

oh, c'mon. I'm pretty sure Carousel or Halo 3 were not the first ones which presented waiting in similar way. It's greatly executed ad of solid, simple idea.

Beyond Carousel/halo 3 debate, is "waiting" still a good message for an ultra-speed network nowadays?
I mean, 5 years ago, we had to wait to download, to stream...but now, contents are pretty fast.
So sure, we'll upgrade from fast to ultra-fast but i feel like "wait" (even more illustrated by a "freeze situation") isn't a good insight anymore.

Otherwise, the film looks great. ;)
