3 weeks,
66 cast members,
3 recording sessions each,
Squeezed into 49 video squares,
Flipped 182 times,
And topped with custom animation.

All wrapped up in a single grid,
And delivered in time for the new year. 

With a bow on top.

Optic Sky and Article Group partnered to help Google praise the millions of people who used Google Meet and Duo to overcome adversity in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic--and for the Google engineers who made it all possible. Initially conceived as an internal-facing video, the first spot to ever feature both Google Meet and Google Duo brought smiles and appreciation to people around the world.
