In the film, people living in poverty read off some #FirstWorldProblems from their own homes and neighborhoods, effectively highlighting the “real” problems of the world.
It’s a promotion from ad agency DDB NY for WaterIsLife, the organization behind a portable filtration device designed to instantly provide clean drinking water from any source.
According to WaterIsLife, their straw “has proven to be effective against waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, dysentery, guinea worm, and diarrhea, and removes particles as small as fifteen microns.”
What do you think of the video? Is the #FirstWorldProblems meme all in good fun, or is it offensive to those living in poverty?
