Good Guy, Good Ad

This ad for the Make-a-Wish Foundation is a classic, and a good argument for the less cynical approach to superheroes. Who wouldn't want a kid to experience that? Who wouldn't want to be the villain?

The ad is a re-enactment, but the story is true, and the volunteer villain plays himself. The original child is alive and well, but too old to reprise his part, so a child actor subs for him.

You can see a higher quality version of the ad here.
