'Alzheimer' Commercial Not About Alzheimer's

meet_you_alz.jpg

Because this spot is labeled "Alzheimer," we figured it had something to do with the dreaded disease. It doesn't but has to do with an equally horrific situation, one that often never is revealed until the end if at all. Watch. The ad was created by Leo Burnett Lisbon.

Goosebumps. This is simply stunning. I wish I could say more, but the spot has said it all.

Full marks to Leo B for a simple, hard-hitting idea, and well done Adrants for highlighting it

This is an excellent commercial, but unfortunately i discovered it was removed from youtube recently. Does anyone know where else it is hosted so I can show it to a friend?

Thanks.Gene.
