This advert for Nescafé Gold cleverly demonstrates that we’ll meet nearly 80,000 people in our lives and we should stay close to the ones that truly matter. A man stands in the middle of an amphitheatre surrounded by a crowd of people standing up that he has met in his life. He goes on to ask them sit down if the answer to some of his statements is true.

He finally asks “Can we have a moment now?” as a handful of people come down to share a Nescafé with him at a table.
