"The Video That Won First Place At Cannes" is a majorly grubby hook.

    eta: Not that I can find an award from Cannes Lions either, I'm merely giving it the benefit of the doubt for the moment. A more accurate description's available elsewhere - "Produced by Niños con Cáncer, asociación AFANOC (Association for Children with Cancer), this Spanish Cancer advertisement is so good, some people claim it won a prestigious award". I wonder whether it did.

    You tell me, BTS, I think I've given up trying to understand how some people tick. It really puts me off ever introducing another thread onto Forum Garden. I know from my own experience that siblings can have the most amazing depth of love and compassion for each other, even though they may have disagreements and even fights. They would even lay down their life for their brother or sister. That feeling was portrayed in that little video. It is something which does in fact happen, and I really can't be doing with all the nit-picking. I deleted the bits that referred to so-called winning a top prize with that video, but I get the feeling that wasn't enough. Dogs and bones come to mind. I don't know why I damn welll bother.

    Re: EVERYBODY SHOULD SEE THIS - It is so beautiful !

    Why are you so melodramatic about this, Gill? All you needed to do was leave Spot's first post alone instead of having to create an argument with him. He, like anyone else has a right to express his opinion. So he didn't reply like you wanted him to - big deal - move on, for god's sake. Are you controlling to the point that when a member doesn't say what you want them to you make an issue out of it....or is it only with Spot? Its not like he strayed off the topic, he gave you his perspective, deal with it or blow it off, but stop whining.

    BTS, nice to see you too. How is the wife doing?

    Incidentally, I'm guessing the owners of the charity and the people who created the video are hoping those that like it are willing to say so with their wallets. Have you figured out where to send your checks?

    Thanks LarsMac. I try to disregard their attempts at ruffling my feathers, but what they are doing is picking holes in an innocently placed video that I thought others may like to see. Nothing sinister intended, yet they are finding cynical reasons why (in their opinions) it should be questioned ! It seems that most things to be included on a thread should be double checked before even considering it's inclusion. Well tough. And for those who think I'm being melodramatic over this - yes I bloody am, because I'm fed up with people trying to belittle others in public, and trash their thread content. There is too much of it going on. No wonder people are becoming disheartened about this site. I try to introduce a rather nice little video, to show that there still is innocent love in the world, and then BANG ! The nit-picking police stamp all over it. It may seem like somebody's opinion and they should be allowed their opinion, and yes I agree with that, but there is a way of making that opinion without belittling the OP'er and insinuating that the video is a fraud, or has a hidden agenda.

    I think it's a lovely video Gill. It's nice to be reminded that there are many ways we can contribute to those suffering with cancer.

    Keep posting Gill
