Wow. I love this idea. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it before -a different documentary every time?
Cool idea, and the website looks AMAZING :)

This is NOT to throw any negative energy towards this ad, in any way,
but since you mentioned: " - a different documentary every time?"
Well, here's one with a different spot every day for a whole year ;)

The documentary format of a different collection of films everytime is more relevant here because it mimics the disorder. Nothing against the Ikea stuff you referenced. It's fun and all, but all it is a different commercial each day. @random is trying to change perceptions and build awareness of a misunderstood disorder in way that makes you realize that the disorder is constantly changing. :)
