Water is Life: First World Problems Response @DanJordan2001

First world problems from a different perspective.

Editor's Pick

DDB New York and Water is Life have launched the "Hashtag Killer" campaign, which sets out to eradicate the ironic #firstworldproblems meme--in which people tweet about such life burdens as non-heated leather seats or forgetting their maid's last name--and, in the process, raise awareness about serious developing world issues.

The agency gathered various "first world problem" tweets and then approached people in Haiti to recite them in an anthem video. But perhaps even more affecting is the campaign's series of personalized responses, in which various Haitians console those who have used the hashtag on Twitter. The responses will be delivered by Water is Life as well as a number of celebrities like LMFAO, Christina Millian, Michael Ian Black and Others.
