It’s all, all, all about story full of the human element–building with some curiosity and suspense right to the end. Great camera angles, nice lite music–but a few well-chosen words can change the tenor of everything. This applies to everything and is the essence of marketing (and advertising, and, and, and …)

I’m not sure this is “good” design—just very unique and creative.
