Memorable Funny Video with a Purpose

It’s a busy short week at Vasil Media because of the upcoming Thanksgiving Day Holiday in the US.

Instead of an article, I am sharing a funny video I found on a healthcare communication blog that I follow. I recently wrote about how tricky humor can be and how you want to make sure you do it well. This one works.

The video was created almost a year ago for Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, but the message is timeless. I used to produce medical stories for Medstar Television at BWH, so the post caught my eye. Well done, BWH Public Affairs!

The video uses a short light-hearted story to deliver important information about recognizing patients.The producer kept the story-telling simple and fun. The characters intentionally look silly, almost like watching a live action cartoon.

But notice there's method to the madness. The video is both entertaining and educational. I am sure the "message" will stick with anyone who watches it. Hope you enjoy it.
