I’m gonna warn you right off the bat: this isn’t a normal installment of A Word From Our Sponsor. Most of the running time consists of a video essay that attempts to visually connect the dots from Apple’s “You’re More Powerful Than You Think” campaign back to Levi’s highly influential “Go Forth” campaign, all the way back to that campaign’s inspirations in the style of Terrence Malick – and forward again to the many, many copycats that Levi’s “Go Forth” campaign inspired.

The only clips not cited used in the mashup are:
