This is not new, but it’s a very effective advert that we somehow missed. Lovely, even if it did make someone just cry.

That is really rather moving.
God, that is a weepie…
It made ME cry, too!
Phillis that was lovely – Thankyou.
I posted this out on Twitter a couple of weeks ago cos I found it thought-provoking and quite moving. Powerful indeed….
Wow. Very moving! Almost reduced me to tears then.
the original is here;
This is an almost exact remake, described by the poster on YouTube as an ‘homage’, but being used as an advert. There are other versions around
Yes very True: Change your words, change your world.
Bút ’tis véry sad that meanimg/compassion & evoking understanding needs sugarcoating.
The blind man did-not change @all…the ”blind”-audience did.
“Another Day In Paradise-think about it”
Phillis that was lovely – Thank You (2)
That was beautiful !!!
made me cry too. beautiful advert
That was beautiful.
Damn you! You just made me cry too!
I couldnt help thinking. How did he write his first sign.
Failed in the execution slightly. And it would have made more sense if it had actually been filmed on a beautiful day, rather than what appeared to be a rainy, cold day in Scotland.
Great idea though and a good message.
Hmmm….Why is he begging? It’s Scotland, not Afghanistan. It’s an ad for a bloody marketing company as well! WTF @ at everyone else’s comments?
Great advert. I recognise the bit of Glasgow, isn’t that between GOMA and Buchanan St?
is tht another zoe above? hi!!!! its very moving…
Didn’t think it was that good.
they edited the bit where shes pushes him over and takes a consultancy fee

Can’t find any credits anywhere and it’s really annoying me. What is the music that is played before the Svengali tour, to the audience before Derren comes on stage?
Aw that was really nice. Gave me goosebumps! I always hate hearing a Glasgow accent on tv, probably because it’s so similar to my own!
Oh, Ruth, if you’re talking about this tune here:
It’s the theme tune that plays before all of Derren’s shows.
