Comments from Youtube

Kim : Wow. A commercial that is genuinely good. No clue of what you're selling but the narrative was great and the cinematography was even greater

Albin Grahn : is giant corp supposed to be amazon?

Mr. Snoken : Now this is a good commercial who ever made this have a good future ahead of them.

Emik : when i first saw this i genuinely thought this was a movie trailer with a great concept

Alessandro Donadi : I love the blade runner vibe this commercial has

09erre : Well this is kind of ironic, isn't it? Considering you just sold out to PayPal...

Hans Lee : Now that is an ad!

Lou Woot : I'm so attached to Billie's character I need a full film thanks

KuBsy72 : Fair enough, iZettle. I know you sell credit/debit card payment processing machines, but as a small business owner, I can't see why banks don't cap their card processing fees (apart from greed). Sometimes I might make £200 on a £2000 sale and iZettle want 1.75% (£35) of that just for processing the card payment (i.e. requesting the money from the card holder's account and transferring it to my bank account). I guess it's because the banks set the fees, but that's £35 of my profit gone to the bank for doing what probably costs them 10p. It would be better for the likes of iZettle, if they really want to support small businesses, to petition the banks to lower their card processing fees. Afterall the amount of work involved for a machine to process a £10 transaction is the same as a £100 transaction, so why charge me a fixed percentage? Instead the fee should be a fixed fee e.g. 20p or something per transaction. On top of that Government legislation introduced earlier this year means I have to swallow the card processing fee and can't pass it on to the customer who wants to pay by card. Either that, or raise prices for everyone (including cash paying customers) to cover the greedy bank fees. It's extortion I tell you.

Lou Woot : The music, the cinematography, the concept; make a full featured film and it break the box office

つっき : This could become a movie.

Peanutcat : Damnit. I thought this was a movie and got genuinely hyped over it.

Fantomen : this is one of the best commercials i've watched

MotherChucker : Giant Corp is Amazon, isn't it?

Ada Productions : Giant Corp reminds me of Evil Corp :D

Battlefool 000 : lol why does this remind me of deus ex

Mortem August : Kinda want to see a longer version of this

Euan James : This is an amazing ad! I run my own advertising agency and I have a feeling I'll be using this video as a case study to break it down and see exactly how it works so well.

Jarod Smith : all of those people protesting giant corp should have been purchasing her locally produced baked goods tho. I guess they weren't motivated enough to give business to literally the only competition around 🤔

MrGeeSinc : Wonderful message, great video! Never watched an advert all the way through before on youtube, that was delightful :)

Matthew Pearce : Slightly ironic that iZettle has recently sold out to giant corp (purchased by PayPall for $2.2 billion). Hope us little businesses can still flourish as you go global

Jessica Vaux : How dare this not be a movie trailer...

appulsprite : this ad was bomb!!! so pretty, so cinematic, so neat and thought out. and well designed. i liked it more than the video i was gonna watch that had this ad on it


Odianosen Ejale : Its kind of funny, after hearing "We deliver to your door within 5 minutes. Don't worry, we will let ourselves in". Then "Giant Corp has successfully launched another fully automated warehouse", after a while heard "its all going according to plan says its CEO", my brain was expecting "Jeff Bezos" next.

FOTOCENTRE PLUS : Will be interesting to see if PayPal up the charges from 1.75%

Maarten Peters : absolute amazing, shared on Fb!! fckn important


Sweyn Forkbeard : Thanks for support Handmade. Well done iZettle!

Helen : For a second I thought it was a movie trailer, a really good one. I think it could be a movie that warns us for such companies, amazing work. My audio and visual teacher is going to love this

ShopAppy Collection Point : Love this - we agree - and we are part of the resistance ;-)

Sam Haworth : 0:30 sound's like he's saying according to plan'' Says its yo ;D

Amdecreations : One of the few un skippable ads, well done.

Auberon Hall : Getting a definite Black Mirror vibe

jane smith : loved the advert, haven't the foggiest what you're actually selling

Stephen Duller : Me too I watched it all as it was like a good film, and a worthwhile message 10/10

Anthony Clark : Well, that was very subtle. As iZettle was bought by PayPal for $2.2 billion, I'm not really buying the concept.

Victoria Wolf : Love it, as a small independent I feel the pain of Giant Corp!!

Pandapucks : Advertised on "Detroit Become Human" gameplay.

Jonas Lundin : Oh the irony.. Anyone who's ever worked with PayPal know that they have terrible terms for small businesses

neuralvibes : Better than Bladerunner 2049.

Kenji Elzerman : The second time I fully watched an ad and actually the first time I clicked on the link! An ad that actually worked! Perfect story, perfect view on the future and a very good warning to us all

Grant Muir : Have you not sold out to PayPal??? ;-) The lure of big bucks gets to everyone, even iZettle!

Gamer J : what kind of an ad doesn't show the product AT ALL. its more of a short movie. I mean for crying out lound its an ad for a cardreader

Catter Man : Is this Black Mirror?

Erik Hendriks : Quite strange to imagine that ‘Giant Corp’ was once a startup whose name already was called ‘Giant Corp’. 🤔

Kanonier Söra : Best add I've seen ever

Massoud Q : As a small retail business owner: Well done, it was at the right time for me to see this commercial, lets fight giant online companies, I never give up. Thanks

James Heming : Loving the visuals. As others have said, no idea what you're selling, but love it! Voice artist bits were a bit on the cheap side compared with the rest of it's epic'ness. Hey, could I have done better? Not a chance!
