This week, we're going International. Our Ad of the Week comes from Taiwan, It's a great video that draws on basic human emotion, no matter what language you speak. It's all about the connections you've made over the years and reconnecting to the people who have mattered the most in your life.
The video revolves around five gentlemen, average age 81, who car connected from their youth. There's an old black and white photograph of a group of them at the beach on their motorcycles. One of the guys in the photograph has just died. It becomes apparent that one of the women, passed some time ago. The five guys left – one has a hearing problem, one has cancer, three have heart disease and all of them have degenerative arthritis.
They decide to reconnect to each other and their youth, honoring those who have gone before them by getting in shape and going on a journey – riding their old motorcycles. It's a touching story about having dreams and following through. The bank is only brought into the picture at the very end – to punctuate the story. Take a look:
