  1. The very first word “YOU”.
  2. The story building… YOU and my best friend and we got something to do… “Togetherness experience enhancement”.
  3. The copy from 0.59 to 1.03

  4. Count how many times “YOU/YOUR” have been used in the entire ad.
  5. All common kinds of faces are used for belongingness to everybody.
  6. The brilliant mixture of emotions around YOU and tech specs.
