Matt Damon And ‘The Wait For Water’

It’s very rare to be completely absorbed by an obtrusive YouTube advert in the middle of an entertaining video even with the option of ‘skipping’ the commercial right there, though the minute I saw Matt Damon I was keen to watch. In the past, I have lived in a neighbourhood that suffered from an acute shortage of water and it was a frustrating experience, and this ad with its emotional appeal brought me to tears. I relived that experience of surviving with a scarce supply of resources which taught me an important lesson about survivability and adaptability, although it’s nothing compared to what Matt describes the children in developing world who miss their education because they have to walk a fair distance to access water. This is simply an amazing commercial for a good cause!
