rock paper scissors be together not the same advert

Be together. Not the same. Longtime Rivals Rock, Paper, and Scissors come together in a new anti-bullying advert.


Google Android’s charming one-minute TV commercial, “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” which premiered in between the Oscar ceremony, proved to be an instant hit with viewers.

Taking the form of an anti-bullying PSA, the spot applies the rules of the rock-paper-scissors game to illustrate the friendship between the three unlikely objects, and ends with Android operating system’s slogan: “Be together. Not the same.”

Paper, a new arrival at school, discovers that being similar to others does not necessarily lead to quick acceptance. Paper and Rock befriend another bullying victim, Rock, and overcome their fears to become best of pals.

Rock, Paper and Scissors don’t have much in common, but that won’t stop them.

The advertisement garnered praise from viewers, as the minute-long and wordless commercial was able to present a serious message against bullying wrapped up in adorable animations.
