The Indestructible Soccer Ball

November 24, 2012 by Documentary, Inspiration

Talking head public service announcements (PSAs) are difficult to do. The line between contrived cheese and compelling content is hair thin. But when it’s done right it works well.

In this PSA about an indestructible soccer ball, the writer and the director find a good balance between the celebrity, the inventor and the story. I’m not a huge fan of the cut aways to the profile footage, but I get why it was done. Overall the PSA got me, and that’s what counts.

All that said, the indestructible soccer ball is a brilliant invention. And the charitable action you trigger when you buy one is righteous. PCN is ordering an official office ball so Michael and I can cause havoc and chaos by putting this thing through a few windows. We hope that you’ll get one for yourselves.
