The tree of life ad - not the movie, but a true story

Postby Icon » 02 Mar 2012, 10:38

Very interesting, allegedly based on a true story. After 921, a man's life saved by nature. He's grateful, he wants to give something back. "Trees speak, can't you hear them?", he asks. Ad director is from Thailand.

Long version:

So... there is a Tree of Life Chinese version too?
"I wanted to be puzzled and charmed, to experience the endless, beguiling variety of a continent where you can board a train and an hour later be somewhere where the inhabitants speak a different language, eat different foods, work different hours, live lives that are at once so different and yet so oddly similar. I wanted to be a tourist," Bill Bryson.
"...But I ended up in Taiwan," Lili.

Never underestimate how much assistance,
how much satisfaction,
how much comfort,
how much soul and transcendence there might be
in a cold bottle of beer.

I saw the long version the other day. At first I wasn't sure it was a commercial, since it was so long and it wasn't obvious what product it was selling. Ironic it turned out to be a commercial for a bank. I mean, don't they approve loans for development projects that often necessitate the bulldozing of vast swaths of nature to make way for concrete?
