This video is a commercial for Google Chrome and was shown during this week’s broadcast of Glee (in at least some US markets). Apart from being a very affecting commercial, it also shows, I think, how a company can advocate for the social good while still promoting its products or services. Heck, it made me want to switch to Chrome.
This also shows that if you make a video that’s good, one that’s done well, is affecting, passionate, spot-on and/or that promotes an idea that needs to be promoted, the Internet will beat a path to your door to help you spread that video far and wide—and some of those folks will be using Chrome (I, however, am not—but, then, I do already use a lot of Google products, including Blogger).
And one more thing: This also shows that even big companies can, at least sometimes, do good things.
