Kleenex Hand Towels Are Clean, Brooklyn People Learn

To demonstrate the purpose of a Kleenex Hand Towel, the brand set up a free handwashing station in Carroll Park, Brooklyn. They provided people with two drying options: a “sketchy” cloth towel and a dispenser filled with Kleenex Hand Towels. Studiocom and director Paul Iannacchino (of the original Coke Happiness Machine) then filmed a video in which people look dubiously at the dirty cloth towel and joyously wipe their hands on Kleenex’s offering.

The opening shot of babies swinging is adorable, and a hands-on approach is smart, but all the Purell-squirting people who are now tempted to use Kleenex Hand Towels should know that the video is set to a soundtrack of trees crying. The wail is just indiscernible to the human ear.
