Last week, the Ad Council launched a new short film, “A Message from the Future,” as part of the Because of You campaign, a public service advertising campaign to address teen bullying. The new work encourages teens to consider the long-lasting impact of their actions in a culture where meanness is normalized, in order to create a more empathetic, inclusive community.

Using an innovative technology technique, the teens in the ad were aged up to show how our words and actions can impact someone’s day, year, or life. Teens were surprised with a live message from their technologically aged friend, thanking them for stepping in when they were experiencing bullying and explaining how words and actions can have long-lasting effects.

PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center was one of the key nonprofit partners supporting this new campaign with the Ad Council, helping extend the film and its important message to its vast and growing audience of youth who are committed to bullying prevention.
