Sometimes, commercials are so powerful that they end up making history. This advertisement featured in the video below is one of the examples! This PSA was released on Earth Day 1971 by a nonprofit organization called “Keep America Beautiful”. This advert was later listed on the “50 greatest commercial of all times”. This 1 minute long ad is titled “The Crying Indian” and is very emotional.
In this PSA, we see a Native American rowing down a river which is filled with trashes. As he reaches the shore, he further more sees litters everywhere. A man even throws the garbage bag from the car window which explodes right at the foot of the Native American. That is when the camera pans in to show this Indian’s tears.
This campaign was a great success. Do you still remember this? Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comments below!
