From 5 to 10 years ago, it was an award-winning advert that I can scant remember except for a brilliant premise. A story unfolded in 10 seconds, and is replayed from three different perspectives, giving the viewer three interpretations of what just happened. In the first place, maybe it looks like a guy is pushing a lady out of the way because he's on the run from the cops, then in the second place, it seems he's not running away, but running toward someone, maybe trying to help, then we get another twist. Something like this. I don't recall what award it won or for whom it was delivered, perhaps a bank or utility. It took place in a busy commercial street in daylight. If you've seen it, you'll probably remember more about it than I do!

Hillman may have already posted the URL but wasn't it an ad for the Guardian newspaper?
