A friend in Spain sent me a link to this video. It’s the holiday season ad for the Spanish processed meat company Campofrío and it’s set in the current crisis. In the video, a score of famous Spanish comedians help an unemployed clown write his cv, listing all of Spain’s many accomplishments. There are references to many of the social consequences of the current crisis: the emigration of Spain’s youth and the burden placed on retirees, who often have to support their children and grandchildren. The video is very well written and produced but has not been without controversy. Many on Twitter point out that the company laid off 1800 employees recently.
