Security camera clips that make the news usually show bad things, but Coke decided to “look at the world a little differently” in this heartwarming viral video. They found security camera footage from around the world showing happy moments: people stealing kisses instead of possessions, dealing potato chips instead of drugs, and offering car assistance rather than road rage.

wait hold on

Okay. I don’t usually weigh-in online about things like this (although I feel very strongly about them) but THIS. I want this to go viral. I want this campaign to spread. I want people to see this.
“Typically, sexual assault awareness campaigns target potential victims  by urging women to restrict their behavior. Research is telling us that  targeting the behavior of victims is not only ineffective, but also  contributes to how much they blame themselves after the assault. That’s  why our campaign is targeting potential offenders - they are the ones  responsible for the assault and responsible for stopping it. By  addressing alcohol-facilitated sexual assault without victim-blaming, we  intend to mark Edmonton on the map as a model for other cities.”
Edmonton you are doing this right. More info on the campaign here.

I have seen these and they are great
