This Norwegian commercial chronicles a man's social anxiety symptoms as he walks down a busy urban street. After accidentally bumping into someone, the man turns around to see everyone starring directly at him and runs into an alley to regain his composure.
Though dramatic in its overall tone, this ad depicts realistic anxiety symptoms and illustrates the seriousness of the chronic and common condition. This emotive commercial ends with the "Have social anxiety? You are not alone" message and directs viewers to a Norwegian anxiety association that works to provide support and treatment options for young people who are suffering from the condition.
With more and more diagnosed with social anxiety each day, it is important to recognize and treat the condition rather than ignoring it -- something that this powerful commercial urges its viewers to do.
