This Danish TV Ad is what the world needs to remember

As TV2’s video “All That We Share” opens, Danes file quietly onto a soundstage, stepping into outlined areas on the floor — areas meant to define them. “The High Earners” versus “Those Just Getting By.” “Those We Trust” versus “Those We Try To Avoid.” Lifelong Danes, versus those new to Denmark. Divisions you will find not just in Denmark, but in any country on Earth.

However, a man begins to ask questions:

When the two first met in 1974 at Honey’s home near Banda Island, Indonesia, the eel was very timid around Valerie.

But after a few years, something changed.

“She didn’t just come out. She swam around me, she swam between my legs, she nuzzled my face, and I thought this is amazing,” Valerie says in the video posted by the Central Florida Aquarium Society. “And after that, we have been great friends, and now when she sees me coming… and I might not see her for a year (once I didn’t see her for three years!), this thing comes out across the sand, and comes over to me and hugs and loves… there is no doubt in my mind that eel really likes me.”…
