After a spate of suicides amongst Canadian youth sparked public outcry about the devastating effects of bullying on young people, director Rich Obeng and Jason Miller teamed up to craft a jarring PSA to raise awareness. The messaging calls out the equally as culpable 'helping hand' that remains idle in the midst of bullying: the bystanders who stood in silence rather than speaking out (as stated in a Huffington Post feature interview with its director, Rich Obeng).

In the first of many collaborations from the creative trio Jason Miller, Rich Obeng of Anansi Minds, and the Mind Refinery's Kyle Bodanis – behind TVO's feature true-documentary Some Sort of Judas – they teamed up to enter a General Motors commercial contest for which they would go on to be shortlisted. Capturing scenes from downtown Oshawa, a city just east of Toronto with a storied history of making some of the best General Motors vehicles in North America and a more recent tale of reinvention, the commercial elegantly draws into focus the features of the then highly-touted Chevrolet Cruze.
