To celebrate the power of friendship, Grey New York went to a public school in NYC and invited parents to hear how their child was doing at school. The twist was when parents arrived, it wasn’t a teacher waiting but their child’s best friend doing the talking. Throughout the story, parents realized that seeing their child through the eyes of a friend was the best report card of all.
 
Floyd Russ from Tool of North America directed this brand anthem, titled “Through the Eyes of A Friend,” for Hasbro’s My Little Pony

My Little Pony toys, entertainment, branded experiences, and online content all revolve around the power of friendship. The brand’s tagline is “Friendship is Magic.”
