Bullying prevention social activist Monica Lewinsky has launched a PSA which serves as a powerful exploration of bullying by recasting the issue and asking the question: “If this behavior is unacceptable in real life, why is it so normal online?” 
 
The film, created by BBDO New York, portrays people publicly acting out real online comments to illustrate that at the receiving end of every comment is a real person--a fact all too easy to forget in today’s online culture.  While the bullies and the recipients of denigrating talk are actors, those who intervene to stop the bullying are real people, which gives a life-affirming positive tone to the work.

Titled “In Real Life, the PSA was directed by Win Bates via BBDO Studios.
