    Having knowledge of the European political context would be helpful in understanding why this video was made. After watching this video and thinking about Denmark a nation it makes me wonder, "are they prejudice against the LGBTQ community or differences in general?" I think this is a great form of propaganda because even without background knowledge, I was still moved by this video. It made me think about how we shouldn't judge people by the way they look on the outside because there is a big chance we have many similarities.

    This video was all about uniting and not separating based on stupid things like religion, jobs, and where you live. Instead becoming us together, and that is inspiration and inspires change in some who want to become better.

    This is a very successful piece of propaganda. It was meant to show people that everyone has stuff in common and that everyone isn't as different as they might seem. I think this was successful because the video showed hugely different people coming together and realizing that they have a lot in common.

    This add is well rounded in the sense that it shows how people are not so different even if you believe you are in part of a 'box'. The add is advertising a broadcasting station and since broadcasting stations want a large and diverse audience the add gives off the idea that it is a station for everyone because we are all alike. It used emotion to bypass the thinking that the station may broadcast things not from you view and other information like that.

    This commercial is beneficial because it shows that even though we may classify some people as "different," there are some people that are the same that you might have never thought. This is good because it shows that we all have had struggles and can relate to each other.

    This ad was very inspirational, and heart warming to find that we aren't as different as we may feel. This commercial was meant to show us that we aren't as different as we may think. To show us that silly things like race, religion, culture, and languages don't make us different from our peers.

    This ad shows everyone has similarities and some people have a lot of people who share same commonalities and others who have little or none. This ad shows all people have their struggles and weaknesses but there are many who share those and fight along side with you.

    This commercial at first categorizes all types of people, which one the audience will fall in, and shows their similarities and differences to bring them together. Companies try to sell to the largest group of buyers so when including all types of people they get more business from the included people.

    This ad connects with all of us. Everyone could have been put into those boxes and anyone could have been put into those categories. I think that this gave a lot of people persepctive and changed views.

    This video was amazing. It pushed showed me that were all alike in some way, I felt that it was really well made and very creative. It left nothing out and came up with lots of clever ways to make me really think about people and how we all have something in common. The beauty was this was targeted at people as a whole, and they don't discourage us for judging based on appearance, but show you why you shouldn't.

    I think this propaganda is trying to target people who stereotype people into groups, and is saying that everyone is the same in some way. It's trying to make the people in Denmark come together.

    This ad shows how all humans have something in common and we do not need to separate ourselves into groups. It shows how people need to unite and stand together.

    The purpose of this ad is to show everyone is equal, no matter what. It shows even if you are different, you may still have something in common. I think the ad targets everyone because everyone needs to know that everyone is equal.

    This ad shows to be proud of who you are. This is a good ad because when you show who you are, no one judges or makes fun of your. They all accept who you are and respect it.

    I really liked the video. It helped connect everyone that we might pass by in our lives. It shows that we have are alike and we do not have to think certain ways because of someones religion, race, gender, etc.

    I loved this commercial, because it showed all different people, and how all of them can be similar in at least one way. It made me feel good, to know that we are all the same in at least one way, and that no one is an outsider.

    I found this ad so great that I watched it twice.I feel it was a really great ad showing all people personality and showing how some scary people can be just the same as say a doctor. This ad is targeted at everyone and shows everyone how the world is better united.

    Why might some people say this video is harmful?
    Personally, I found this video to be beautiful. I actually plan on spreading it with the organizations I lead and am a part of. For those that feel as if it is harmful, they may be coming from a different emotional place as I am. Essentially, these people may only be ebbing on the fact that the video starts out with stereotyping and segregating different types of people. Obviously this is not the purpose of the video, but sometimes, naysayers tend to only look at the negatives of propaganda, even though this particular piece of propaganda has so much good to offer the world.

    I thought that this was an extremely inspirational video, using the commonalities between people. Originally organized in groups of social status/appearance/gender, then eventually break the mold as they are then praised for having similar commonalities with those around them. This video also displays acceptance of these people and the good that comes with acceptance and learning more about each other. Lastly, these people turned from "I" to "We", as they learn that they have more in common with each other than they had thought.
