    Default Three minutes I want to share with you

    I have forgotten how to open videos on vBulletin. I guess I need a refresher course. But click the link. I think you will be glad you did.

    Sweet! Is it likely to be seen on TV in the US? Hmm.

    Love the theme and the intent of the ad. However, if I'm being totally honest, this ad may further enforce the "Us vs. Them" mentality. I wish there had been at least one "black" face and/or an "Asian" face in the ad. After all, there are over 22,000 Somalians & Ethiopians, and over 15,000 Vietnamese, Thai and other South Asians living in Denmark. About 10,000 Danes of Somalian descent between ages 15 - 19 were born in Denmark, after their parents fled Somalia Civil War in 1986. Bottom line: An ad designed to "bring people together" should include all demographics of the population. And, the ad came close to doing so, except it failed on ethnicity. If certain ethnic groups can not see themselves in an ad like this, what are they to think about the "Us vs. Them" message?

    I'm glad you pointed that out, Mr. Wizard. I had no idea there was such a variety of ethnicities in Denmark. How very blind not to have included some of them in the boxes.
