Every year, there are advertisements that are funny, moving, or smart.
This advertisement by the Western Sydney University is both moving, and emphasises on the importance of education. Following a dramatized version of the life story of Deng Thiak Adut, a child from Sudan who transformed his life through education, the ad-film seems more of an advertisement for education, than a particular university.
The advertisement is even more apt for the times we live in, when massive migrations to the tune of millions is a reality all over the world. It also sheds light on the plight of young children who are drawn into the ugly reality of a nation in crisis.
The ad has drawn more than a million views on YouTube, with commenters curious to know how the story ends. Did it have a happy ending? Have a look for yourself!
