Following his death on January 14th, the last work of Alan Rickman has emerged -- an ad to help refugees.

In his distinctive double bass voice, the actor narrates the commercial. He explains, as a tortoise eats a strawberry, that OneClickGiving is attempting to create a viral video in support of Save the Children and the Refugee Council. The more views the ad for refugees gets, the more money is generated via advertising revenue. This makes the video, in effect, a fundraiser for the charities. To make an impact and honor the recently deceased thespian, you can watch and share the YouTube video.

The advert was directed by Oliver Phillips and edited by Michaela Brady while Aimee Kwan and Annie Flynn received DP credit.
