The images, when combined with a solemn voiceover, form the basis of one of the most enduring, and enduringly bad, ad templates—the old “shoot-the-brief montage.” Recently, it seems as though more and more advertisers are reaching for this chestnut, so this parody comes at a particularly good time.
This is impressive.
