Please click on the link above.  I know this isn’t a photo, its a video, but I really wanted to share it.

‘This advert for the Guardian’s open journalism, screened for the first time on 29 February 2012, imagines how we might cover the story of the three little pigs in print and online. Follow the story from the paper’s front page headline, through a social media discussion and finally to an unexpected conclusion’

I really like how it portrays the huge effect the media has on us.  A story that we all know so well from childhood, in a mere two minutes has us wondering if we were wrong, and that maybe the wolf was the victim.   What else are we being ‘convinced’ of?

I also thought they did a great job of showing what ‘we’ then do with information via social media.  A great ad!!
