The spot doesn’t fully attain the emotional resonance it seems to be striving for, but it's still an accomplished and interesting piece of work.

The spot does nothing for me. Maybe because it's animated..

@ atb2005

You're implying that animation is not capable of being emotive, touching or moving.

Are you sure you want to stick by that comment?

Well, it could be. I guess I should have said that it hasn't been done particularly well.. That's just my opinion.

This is really nice. I don't know if it's been done before, but it's something new for me. :)
