This anthem spot for GE along with three :30s are running during NBC’s broadcast of the Winter Olympic Games.

Conceived by BBDO New York, this “What Matters” campaign touches upon the technological advancements that GE has made. Yet those advances pale by comparison to what they mean for people in everyday life--like a mom whose premature baby benefited from GE innovation. Yet to this grateful mother, the technology isn’t what matters--instead it’s that she can take her baby daughter home tomorrow. And for the grandma who’s on a plane with GE tech advances, what matters is that she will see her grandson’s school play. And for a lad whose community is illuminated by GE, what matters is he has homework to do.

The tagline to this “Anthem” piece as well each individual :30 telling each person’s story is simply the GE mantra: “Technology is how we do things. People are why we do things.”

Todd Field directed all four spots via production house Smuggler.
