If you’re perpetually on your phone, this video is your definitive answer to mobile naysayers; save this and shove it in their faces when the moment calls for it.
In partnership with British telecommunications company Three, ad agency Wieden+Kennedy London has pieced together hard evidence that the world could have been a better place if smartphones existed throughout the history of mankind.
The tongue-in-cheek video depicts how the ‘RMS Titanic’ could have been saved through smartphone alerts, how Tinder could have prevented King George VIII from meeting his six wives, as well as how Eve could have resisted the serpent’s temptations if she had been immersed in Instagram.
The ad pokes fun at traditionalists who insist that times were better without mobile devices. Watch it below.
