The purpose of this film was to get younger people to sign up for organ donation. We knew the typical tug at the heart strings approach would be invisible for this target. In fact they would sniff it out so fast it would work against us. So we went the opposite direction. Knowing they are skeptics, dark and just outright assholes at times we served them a giant pile of themselves, times ten. We gave them Coleman Sweeney: The World’s Biggest Asshole. An asshole 24/7 365 days a year. Except for that one shining moment when he did something good. And that’s when he went from asshole to hero.
