0:01. The ad starts with a view of a computer screen that shows two pixalated skeletons who are embracing and kissing each other. The rest of the screen is black.

003. The shot changes to a crowd of people outdoors watching this monitor, pretty large in size. Some are taking pictures and recording the monitor. It is unclear why they are watching this, it seems to be a nice warm day, green on the plants around them. From the sides of the shot, it appears to be in an urban area.

0:04. We see a white man in a blue-ish shirt peering his head towards the monitor, either to get a better look or to try and figure out what he’s watching. A woman in a pink shirt watches next to him. Other people around him watch, their faces blurred out.

0:05. Shot goes back to the monitor and we see the skeletons have walked away from each other. The surrounding area remains the same.

0:06. A woman emerges from behind the screen and shows that she was one of the skeletons. She has blonde hair and a plaid shirt.

0:07. Another woman appears as the other skeleton on the other side of the screen. She has short brown hair.

0:08. The shot cuts back to the crowd. The focus is on the woman in the crowd with a pink shirt. She looks happily surprised to see the two women.

0:09- 0:10. Back onstage, the two women kiss again in front of a now completely black monitor.

0:11-0:12. Two skeletons on the monitor dancing. Zoom out to see the sun setting behind the monitor.

0:13. On one side, one skeleton appears as a blackwoman.

0:14. On the other side, an asian man appears. They embrace in front of the audience, the audience cheers.

0:16-0:20. Two smaller skeletons are on the screen, they reveal themselves as two young girls.

0:21. As the stand side by side, a message appears in white words on the black screen, “Love has no disability.

0:23. The man and woman stand together, the message says “love has no race.”

0:25. The two women stand together, the message says “love has no gender.” By now it is obvious that this ad is trying to show how all inclusive love is a thing that should be celabrated. Judging by all the audience reactions, it appears that they agree.

0:27-0:30. The camera is in front of the crowd. One message is on the screen. “Love has no labels.” A second message appears, “rethink bias at lovehasnolabels.com.”
