American Heart Association Commercial
Dates: June 2011 - September 2011
This Television Commercial plays Stayin' Alive
This commercial begins with a group of friends playing charades. A man starts acting out a movie, but in the middle of it, he collapses from a heart attack. At first everyone thinks he is acting out his charades topic, but when they realize something is wrong they don't know what to do. Out of nowhere, the Bee Gees famous song, Stayin' Alive starts playing, and two young blonde women come out. Their shirts say, "Call 911", and "Push Hard and Fast", and they start doing what their shirts say. The first girl dials 911 for an emergency, and the second girl starts CPR pushing in time to the disco song. Again, out of nowhere, Ken Jeong (known from [The Hangover] and NBC's [Community], but is also a real licensed M.D.) comes out and starts talking. The idea of the commercial is to let people know what to do in case someone has a heart attack. Doing chest compressions to the beat of Stayin' Alive by the Bee Gees can help save a life. When the paramedics arrive, they take over with the chest compressions with the same beat. A movie! Sounds like. Slingshot, fly, bird, fish. It's definitely a romantic comedy. Shirt man, the heart attack, falling down. Ken Jeong: This ever happen to you? Harmless game of charades based on film titles turning into a sudden cardiac event? Then, BAM! SHA-CLACKY! No? What? You think you're better than me? Well it happens, alright? It's a real life situation! Got my daughters here: Call 911 and Push Hard and Fast. Okay? FOCUS! And yes, the beat of Staying Alive really works. Shamon. Disco can save lives. Yes, disco, huh, check it out. What do you think? What? Dance party.
