Embrace Life – A PSA & Our Ever Changing Story

Welp… as this story of ours continues to be written things have once again taking a turn. Not for the worst, just another direction. The plans to stay here in Arizona didn’t pan out, so at the end of this month our place of residence is up in the air. Are we moving back to Texas? Not sure. Chicago? Hmmm… not sure. Tennessee, Atlanta or Canada? All of these things are options at this point. We’re really not ruling anything out at this point. Who knows what’s next!

So since I can’t provide much info on our future, let me distract you with something else completely unrelated – but awesome!

This is for sure one of my favorite videos on YouTube. It’s a PSA called “Embrace Life”, and it is so well produced, and so powerful that every time I watch this I’m moved. I get chills. This is art. And it’s a freakin’ PSA.

Watch it right now if you haven’t already.

Pretty powerful stuff, hu? Nothing is said. No words. Every gesture we recognize even without the car, and we completely understand what’s happening. They’re not trying to shock you into wearing your seat belt. They’re trying to move you to action. So good.

This piece was shot on a Phantom HD camera at frame rates up to 1000fps at some point. A fantastic example of modern technology and art being beautiful fused together to invoke a response.

What do you think? Am I making a bigger deal out of this than it is? I’ve watched this over and over, and it just doesn’t seem to get old. What say you?
