"A very clever piece of advertising aimed at making the viewer look at the wider picture.
Played out in black and white, a skinhead turns on a street corner and runs at speed towards a man with a briefcase.

the skinhead grabs the man's briefcase and pulls him free of some falling masonry.
As we realise, we should always look at every angle of the story."
