This short is a dig at the Coca-Cola company, and pretty funny:

This is really just an ad, but it's darn cool:

So was any of it real? Or was it just an ad, where even the "unsuspecting customers" were also paid actors?

Who knows? Might all have been actors. But, still entertaining. It's hard to know/trust much when it comes to newstertainment.

*Very* professionally filmed, which I think would argue for all actors. Either way, brilliantly made and done. I rarely laugh out loud at anything, and I was in stitches at that - in spite of knowing (roughly) what was coming.

Well they ... uh.. *said* it was filled with actors! I think there's a good chance that they ran the "prank" for like 2-3 customers at a time, then "closed for lunch" and reset it all.

Right, but the question was whether or not the "customers" were also actors who were in on it.

When Alex died, BBC reported that a parrot died which was smarter than most American Presidents. What they forgot to mention is that it was also smarter than most members of the Tudor family  :):

It's been mentioned previously in this thread. But I didn't get around to watching it until last night. It's called Changing Batteries, and it's easily the saddest little animation I've ever seen - even if many here will see the ending coming like I did.



Anybody who works as a caregiver, or is responsible for an elderly parent, will find this little tale especially poignant. :(

One of the main things that I find useful about this discussion thread is that someone has taken the trouble to watch a video clip/short film and, finding it worthwhile for whatever reason, posts it here - thereby doing me a favour. In the main, the vids posted tend to be pretty good. I would probably rarely watch such vids otherwise, as I despair of having to wade through the usual mass of mediocrity to find the odd one worth watching. For the same reason, I rarely watch TV.

To try to return the favour: I stumbled upon a no-strings-attached "video channel aggregator" the other day and, out of interest, stayed up late for a while, watching its short films channel - 5by.com.
It's not too bad, and included the video "Ruin" that @panzer linked to in a superb list that he provided -  here.
