Unscripted, real-life social experiment in which two complete strangers, divided by their beliefs, meet for the first time. Viewed more than 50 million times in over 150 countries, the film sparked a global conversation, with 138,000 shares, over 625 articles written about it and international TV news coverage (CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC). It became the top trending topic on Twitter, made the front page of Reddit, was the No.1 ad on YouTube for April and even spawned a couple of parodies. It is Heineken UK’s most effective campaign, ever. See here for a film about its impact.
