    One Life, in seconds

    (via) I’m a big old softee, and every now and then I’ll actually get choked up watching a commercial or music video. Here’s a perfect example. It’s a commercial created by Adam & Eve for the UK Retailer John Lewis, showing the life of a customer in a single minute.

    It reminds me of the video for Elvis Costello’s Veronica for some reason. Maybe because both show a life from beginning to end, one linear and one nonlinear, or maybe it’s just because I watched that one drunken night a couple of weeks ago and it made me bawl like a baby.
