So I’m browsing Facebook and I see Christopher Eccleston in a video for Alzheimer’s Awareness. Now the video was muted, I didn’t watch it, I still haven’t but it gave me this idea for an awareness video. No jokes here, at all. Here’s the set up.
A well known elderly comedian walks on to the screen. They look like they’re going to say something but pause. They look around looking confused and puzzled, before walking off screen.
the Narrator then gives the awareness speech.
And it’s suddenly hits you. The comedian, the titan of comedy that’s brought laughter to thousands, perhaps millions… forgot the joke. The day the laughter died, is when the joke is forgotten. And Alzheimer’s was to blame.
Tell me that would not make a good awareness campaign.
