Allan Gray: Time Flies

This is a commercial ad of Allan Gray. This commercial was released in July 2011 in South Africa. Under the title of “Allan Gray: Time Flies”.

The first half of our lives we spend wishing time would hurry up – life simply moves too slowly. The second half, however, we wish time would slow down; every second counts. This is the simple insight of the television advert, which uses a fairy tale to illustrate a wisdom of life, while subtly reinforcing the importance of time in the journey of creating wealth.

It was done by KingJames, Cape Town advertising agency. And, the commercial by Production Company is Velocity Films and is directed by Keith Rose.

Lyrics:
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others and let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young
