Two Ambassadors en K.O.-Producties are known for their commercials about image and millennium goals. By using those commercials, they try to let the people closely scrutinize the way the media in the western countries shows the current situation in for example Africa.
In the clips the Two Ambassadors continuously point out the manipulation of the media and their limits. How far can you go? The unique methods used in de commercials are a suitable starting point for a discussion and to form an opinion.
The follow clip is a perfect example. An African boy is asked to be sad in front of the camera. At the end, the producers give up because the boy always starts smiling again in each take.
With another movie they try to pay attention to what happens with the collected money for development aid and cooperation. This clip indicates the necessity of the following up. The reason is the temptation to spend all the money on a certain desire ( the bottle of coke) or to rectify the primary needs. Instead most of the money should be used to invest in long term goals and thus supervision is really important.
