Friday Fun

Someone sent me this video, which was allegedly done by a 20 year old as part of a contest for the AARP (American Association for Retired People)

Watch it with the sound ON and watch it all the way through.

Very nicely crafted.

UPDATE: Thanks to Paul Soldera and TSR for pointing out this Argentine political spot (and Silver Lion winner at Cannes 2006) that may have provided the inspiration for the AARP spot.

Wow, that was pretty ingenious. Kinda like a palindrome.

Yep, something very similar won a Silver Lion in Cannes in 2006.

I remember it coming across my desk a couple of years back. I wonder if she knew about it?

I don't think this was "inspired" by the Argentinian spot.

It was a direct rip-off.
