  • Love the animation but oddly narrow notion of “duplication.” What about bacteria or metastasizing cancer cells or rabbits or cockroaches or mice, or malicious rumors . . . or stars?

    Tom P says:
  • Fun & interesting scale info., but I’m not quite sure what “make a difference” is asking the viewer to do? Not duplicate?

    Thanks!

    Miel says:
  • very interesting,simple story easy to understand.

    sunny says:
  • enjoy this video!
    I think it much focus on the people copy and paste , which nowadays people love mass production and just copy the otheres, right?

    Daniel says:
  • So cute!
    I like the expression,Have impact, a simple but profound. Set the current element feels quite interesting.

    Hanson Luther says:
  • good

    Annabel says:
  • Love the cute old stone age people and their action.
    For me, “make a difference” refers to human behavior (copying fake product , copying thinking)
    This is quite interesting idea and congratulations! 🙂

    Nicklas says:
  • Can’t understand first time,after I watch the video second time,I say “You are right,Daniel”.
    Maybe you guys need more time to make the full story much more clearly.

    wong says:
