A promotional ad put together by Danish broadcaster TV2 has been shared by millions around the world since the English version was released just a few days ago.
TV2’s video ‘All That We Share’ opens with Danes walking onto a stage and stepping into squares outlined on the floor that divide them into categories like ‘High Earners’, ‘Those Just Getting By’, ‘Lifelong Danes’ and ‘New Danes’.
A man begins to ask questions like:
“Who in this room was the class clown?”
“Who are stepparents?”
“Who is heartbroken?”
“Who has been bullied?”
“Who is lonely?”
People step out of their boxes and different members of each group wind up standing together, finding common ground.
The English-language version of the video (see it below) was posted to YouTube on January 27.
It was the same day that US President Donald Trump released an executive order blocking citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for 90 days and halting the Syrian refugees program for four months.
