This is one of my earliest videos but one of my favorites. It is my version of the Zoloft commercial, where the egg chases the butterfly, until he (the egg) poops out. Then, after he takes his meds, he’s back catching butterflies again. Except that I don’t have Pfizer’s budget, and I’m somewhat technologically challenged. And no, I don’t think meds are the cure all.

So, in the spirit of October, I present to you (maybe Pfizer will pay me millions to write their next commercial?) … Depression Is Like a Pumpkin. Click through to view the video…
